Prostyle Building Group wins Home of the Year

Media release
The Housing Industry Association (HIA) has announced the ACT and Southern NSW Home of the Year for 2023, with ACT based Prostyle Building Group taking out the prestigious award.

The 2023 HIA-CSR ACT & Southern NSW Housing and Kitchen & Bathroom Awards, were held on Saturday night, 11 November, at the National Arboretum in Canberra.

“The HIA housing awards recognise the skill and professionalism of our members, and their commitment to delivering projects with the highest standard of workmanship,” said HIA Regional Director Greg Weller.

“As we begin to emerge from one of the most challenging periods for the industry, it was also an occasion to acknowledge the resilience of the building industry across the region.” 

“The HIA-CSR ACT & Southern NSW Home of the Year as a modernist marvel in the heart of Canberra, showcasing 21st-century architectural innovation. Its iconic, curved and cedar battens rising above the glass lower floor pay homage to the city's mid-century design heritage.” 

“From the outside, the house resembles an open garden gallery with glass and brick walls, embracing light and creativity. The soaring timber elements, expansive green areas, and a stunning roof garden reflect the ambition and daring.” 

“The Riverina Home of the Year was won by Higginson Homes & Constructions, for a modern 5-bedroom American barn-style home in Gumly Gumly, near Wagga. The design prioritizes northern aspects to maximize natural light year-round, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere and a home to suit the modern family.”

“Mitchell Evans won the Apprentice of the Year category, with judges noting Mitchell’s strong work ethic and passion for his craft with the Image Carpentry team. Mitchell was acknowledged for his commitment to safety onsite and his excellent problem-solving skills,” concluded Mr Weller.
