Lindon Homes took out the top honour of the night, winning both Custom Built Home of the Year and the prestigious 2023 HIA-CSR Queensland Home of the Year awards for their outstanding inner suburban project. Nestled in a tranquil bushland setting, this exceptional residence stands out for its seamless integration of natural elements and its breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.
Designed with meticulous attention to detail, the home caters to the needs of a discerning couple, offering a master bedroom suite on the mezzanine level and thoughtfully proportioned living spaces below.
One of the standout features is the inviting back deck, carefully crafted to enhance outdoor living while also serving as a connecting bridge between the garage and the fully equipped separate flat, seamlessly integrated with the main residence.
The interior features custom bookshelves with cabinets below, showcasing Lindon Homes' commitment to both functionality and aesthetics. Notably, a dining bench seat/sofa lounge at the rear of the kitchen island bench provides a space-saving solution, optimizing the layout of this narrow home.
This winning design by Lindon Homes encapsulates the essence of modern living in harmony with nature, setting a new standard for architectural excellence in Queensland.
The event also celebrated the work of HIA members across a range of projects:

MK Building & Renovations took home the prestigious title of Renovation/Addition Project of the Year for their exceptional work on a 1980s house. Their transformation breathed new life into the residence, infusing it with contemporary elegance. Standout features include a striking black Japan-stained staircase, handcrafted stonework, and a double-sided fireplace, culminating in a seamless blend of timeless craftsmanship and modern design.
A collaboration between CG Design Studio and Natural Lifestyle Homes won the GreenSmart Sustainable Home award - set on a sloping site, the home combines contemporary curves with mid-century lines behind a classic cottage facade. Bold patterns and textures play against white brickwork, capturing the essence of airy Queensland homes.
