Home of the Year a cliff-hugger

A cliff-hugging home has been named the Australian Home of the Year, as part of the 2023 HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards unveiled this week, in recognition of the best in Australia’s residential building industry.

The spectacular single-level winning home by Tasmanian builder Lane Group Construction is anchored to its windswept, bushland location by a series of heavyset stone pavilions, while an abundance of floor-length glass windows create a serene atmosphere for enjoying views of the rugged coastline of the Derwent River.

Concrete floors and spotted gum timber cladding match the earthy tones of stonework featured prominently in the home, while the cantilevered indoor/outdoor infinity pool, spa and sauna are an indulgent addition to this entertainer’s domain.

The home also won HIA Australian Custom Built Home, partnered by ActronAir.

HIA’s Managing Director Graham Wolfe said the awards recognise exceptional projects, businesses and people from all around Australia.

“HIA Award winners build with exceptional workmanship; demonstrated in projects that push the boundaries in design and innovation”, he said.

Apprentice Bethany Mercieca from NSW was named the HIA Jim Brookes Australian Apprentice of the Year for a strong work ethic and dedication to her craft. She has built meaningful relationships with co-workers, suppliers and clients through excellent communication.

A sophisticated restoration and addition of a heritage-listed bluestone residence by Victorian builder BCG Constructions won HIA Australian Renovation / Addition Project, partnered by COLORBOND steel. The home is a breathtaking fusion of old-world glamour and ultramodern elegance.

Craig Linke Bespoke Building from South Australia took out HIA Australian Kitchen of the Year, for a stunning kitchen finished in aged brass, granite and exotic marbles, with a custom brass canopy.

Hunter builder Greenbuild Constructions won HIA Australian Bathroom of the Year for a moody aesthetic master bathroom that feels luxuriously spacious and light. Greenbuild Constructions also won the consumer-voted HIA-CSR Australian People’s Choice Home
