North Beach showstopper wins Home of the Year

Media release
Spadaccini Homes North Beach showstopper wins WA Home of the Year while regions shine with quality and diversity.

In a year that has challenged the residential building industry, the 2022 HIA CSR Western Australian Housing Awards has celebrated the quality of homes, innovation and variety of building methods, and level of service delivered across the state.

Stealing the show for its luxury and refinement, the spectacular Spadaccini Homes North Beach project added to its Perth Home of the Year accolade to take out the 2022 HIA CSR Western Australian Home of the Year, also collecting Custom Built Home of the Year in the process.

HIA WA Executive Director Michael McGowan said the stunning oceanfront home incorporates the absolute best of everything in meeting the client brief to deliver a forever home that oozes quality and style, while integrating the latest in technology, sustainable design and features.

“The judges follow a meticulous process considering a range of elements including quality of workmanship, design effectiveness, innovation, visual and market appeal, and could not fault the quality of the Spadaccini Homes entry despite the build involving the highest degree of difficulty,” said Mr McGowan.

“The judges admired the home as being refined from every angle, perfectly designed to maximise the oceanfront site and delivered to the absolute highest quality of workmanship.”

Held on Friday 25 November and attended by more than 200 HIA member builders, designers, manufacturers and suppliers, the awards bring together winners from around the state to compete across a range of categories that truly highlight the variety and quality of projects being built in WA.

“We are seeing an increasing variety of construction methods and materials adopted throughout WA with many exceptional examples from regional areas recognised and awarded for their excellence,” said Mr McGowan.

TR Homes picked up Modular and Prefabricated Home of the Year for their project in Bremer Bay. Dunsborough’s Bluewater Building Co. was awarded Innovation in Lightweight Housing of the Year for their remarkable home in Eagle Bay, and Busselton based Wilde Design and Construction took out Regional Home of the Year for their Capel project.

The Greensmart Sustainable Home of the Year was won by Weststyle for their timber framed and clad Shenton Park home. Innovation in Housing of the Year was awarded to Humphrey Homes for their Swanbourne project which incorporated concrete features, ingenious screening, and the use of durable composite materials to suit the coastal setting. The home was completed to the tightest of tolerances and blower tested to measure efficiency.

In a year that has seen unprecedented volumes in project homes, Rural Building Company scored another win for the regions taking out Project Home of the Year for a home in Marbelup. Inspired Homes was awarded Affordable Housing of the Year for their Hilbert project, and Novus Homes won the sought-after Golden Key Award for WA Display Home of the Year for the ‘Zenith’ in Jolimont.

Acknowledging the challenging environment for builders and suppliers Mr McGowan emphasised the significance of the Excellence in Service Awards presented to Aspire Homes & Renovations (small builder); Nulook Homes (medium builder); and Blueprint Homes (large builder). Ultimo Constructions won WA HIA Professional Small Builder/Renovator, while HIA Professional Major Builder was awarded to Summit Homes Group. Small Business Management was awarded to Hannah Smith from South West Building Company.

“All winners and finalists across the State have showcased their ability to deliver the highest quality of homes and service for their clients, despite ongoing challenges around labour, materials and delays to the supply chain,” he said.

“I congratulate all finalists and the winners for their wonderful achievements and wish them luck representing WA at the 2023 HIA CSR Australian Housing Awards.”
