The result was announced to a packed Crown Perth ballroom, full of Perth’s leading residential builders, designers and manufacturers gathered to celebrate the 2022 HIA COLORBOND® steel Perth Housing Awards and 2022 HIA WA Kitchen and Bathroom Awards, in a memorable evening of industry recognition, entertainment and glamour.
HIA WA Executive Director Michael McGowan said the judges follow a meticulous process considering a range of elements including quality of workmanship, design effectiveness, visual and market appeal, and innovation, and could not fault the quality of the Spadaccini Homes entry despite the build involving the highest degree of difficulty.
“Built to a generous brief that included the best of everything, the home delivers amazing coastal views, features the latest in home-automation, sustainability features, solar power and storage, and a material pallet that is both beautiful and enduring,” said Mr McGowan.
“The judges admired the stunning oceanfront home as refined from every angle and sitting well within neighbouring homes. The material selections define the home as modern contemporary with an expanse of double glazed windows, select use of aluminium cladding, and a hard wearing rendering system. The overall stunning presentation assures the home will be on show to passing traffic and local beach walkers every day.”
“The judges commented on the internal material selection throughout the home as oozing quality and style with the use of stone and marble, and high-end cabinetry described as breathtaking.”
“Designed as a truly forever home with consideration for aging in place, every detail has been taken into account, including a separate apartment for later live-in carer accommodation, an elegant glass lift to access the three levels of the home, and every element thoughtfully delivered for comfort and function as the owners age and retire.”
“Overall, this is a remarkable example of the quality and workmanship available in WA, and a great testament to Spadaccini Homes, especially as it has been completed throughout one of the most challenging periods the residential building industry has experienced,” said Mr McGowan.
Spadaccini Homes also won the John Pietersen Award for Custom Built Home of the Year for the North Beach project and took out the Townhouse Development of the Year Award for their Osborne Park project.
Other outstanding winners included Humphrey Homes picking up the Peter Overman Award for Innovation in Housing of the Year for their Swanbourne home, Arklen for Innovation in Lightweight Housing Project of the Year for a Salter Point project, while Exclusive Residence was awarded Renovation / Addition Project of the Year for their Claremont renovation.
The HIA Perth Award evening also celebrated the best kitchens and bathrooms delivered throughout 2022 in the HIA WA Kitchen and Bathroom Awards.
2022 HIA WA Kitchen of the Year was awarded to Lux Interiors for their stunning contemporary industrial kitchen renovation that provided a stylish modern uplift to a traditional Mount Lawley home. In a comprehensive display of quality and workmanship, Lux Interiors also picked up the Renovated Bathroom of the Year and Renovated Kitchen of the Year.
Kitchen Design of the Year was awarded to Carmen Hansberry Design, New Kitchen of the Year to VM Building and Outdoor Kitchen of the Year to Western Cabinets and Spadaccini Homes.
The 2022 HIA WA Bathroom of the Year was awarded to Giorgi for a Peppermint Grove bathroom exhibiting exceptional workmanship, stunning material selection and seamless design incorporating space, lighting, and finishes. The project also picked up the Bathroom Design of the Year and New Bathroom of the Year.
Judged by leaders in the residential housing industry, the HIA Awards provide home builders, cabinet makers and designers with the opportunity to receive recognition for outstanding projects, as well as showcase their work to the broader industry.
“This year’s projects provided an exceptional display of the quality and magnitude of residential homes in Perth, and a timely reminder of the important role the residential building industry has played in terms of supporting WA’s post-COVID economy,” said Mr McGowan.
“When you take into consideration the huge constraints in terms of shipping delays, depleted material stock and labour shortages that have challenged the industry over the past two years, the standard of projects entered in this year’s awards reflect the high calibre of builders and designers we have in our region.
“We’re extremely proud of the work that has been recognised on such a significant night for HIA WA and its members, and we are so appreciative of all the entrants, event partners and those that support this vitally important industry.”
Last week Craig Smythe from of Adbuild Constructions received HIA Life Membership in recognition of his service to the residential construction industry over the last 35 plus years. He becomes only the third Hunter member to receive this prestigious award.
“The long-discussed move of the University of Tasmania (UTAS) from the Sandy Bay campus presents a real opportunity to ease housing pressures in Greater Hobart,” said Stuart Collins, HIA Executive Director Tasmania.
The Victorian Government has announced it is proposing Regulations that will require building practitioners and plumbers to meet Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements. A Regulatory Impact Statement and proposed regulations has been released for public comment.
HIA commented on the Explanation of Intended Effect (EIE) which outlines proposed changes to encourage more low-rise and mid-rise housing (December 2023).
