WA has brought home three awards from the HIA-CSR Aus­tralian Hous­ing Awards last month, including the pres­ti­gious Aus­tralian Home of the Year tro­phy.

Multi award-win­ning Spadac­cini Homes was re­warded with the ac­co­lade for its work on a Sor­rento project.

It also took out the cat­e­gory for Aus­tralian Cus­tom-Built Home.

Judges were im­pressed by the Seaward Loop res­i­dence’s fault­less work­man­ship, at­ten­tion to de­tail and high-qual­ity fin­ishes such as mar­ble floor­ing, stone cladding and glass mo­saics.

“We’re ab­so­lutely blown out of the wa­ter, just ec­static,” Spadac­cini Homes direc­tor Rob Spadac­cini said of the win.

“It’s pretty sur­real con­sid­er­ing I’ve been run­ning my busi­ness for 30 years and I have had 30 chances across 10,000 builders Aus­tralia-wide, so I was pretty taken aback know­ing that we’ve b uilt a home that is num­ber one in Aus­tralia.

“Most builders dream of this but it sel­dom comes to fruition, so I’m very proud.”

Mr Spadac­cini said he owed the win to the peo­ple he had worked with in his ca­reer.

“Per­son­ally, I be­lieve we won be­cause of our abil­ity to ex­e­cute ex­tremely dif­fi­cult homes with great ease, our amaz­ing trade base which has been closely work­ing for us for 10 to 20 years and the knowl­edge we have when it comes to ex­e­cut­ing these very de­tailed homes,” he said.

“I’d per­son­ally like to thank all my trades, sup­pli­ers and all my clients; all my clients are amaz­ing and I’m very for­tu­nate to have a trade and sup­plier base that sup­ports me and the in­dus­try, es­pe­cially at a time like this.”

The lux­u­ri­ous and im­mac­u­lately de­signed home beat con­tenders from eight other re­gions, including the NSW win­ner of the Aus­tralian Apart­ment of the Year award and the Queens­land win­ner of the top Aus­tralian Dis­play Home.

Bel­mont-based Averna Homes won the Aus­tralian Spec Home award for its Villa Nero de­sign in Carine.

The award is in­tended to recog­nise an in­di­vid­ual house that is not built to a client’s brief.

The mod­ern and “streets­mart” home bal­anced dark and light tones with its crafted tim­bers and dis­tinc­tive ren­ders. The judges com­mended the amount of thought given to ma­te­rial se­lec­tion and how well they com­ple­mented each other.

Project direc­tor Jamie Sim said the en­tire team was proud to be a part of such a great achieve­ment.

“We are just hon­oured to be recog­nised by our peers in the in­dus­try,” he said.

“This is our 10th year of build­ing cus­tom homes and the award is the ic­ing on the cake.”

Mr Sim said the re­sult was a team ef­fort and thanked all staff, trades­peo­ple and sup­pli­ers.

HIA man­ag­ing direc­tor Shane Good­win con­grat­u­lated the win­ners and fi­nal­ists for their achieve­ments.

“Each year, HIA mem­bers con­tinue to as­tound our judges with their ex­cep­tional dis­play of work­man­ship and in­no­va­tive de­sign ideas,” he said.

“These awards are the cul­mi­na­tion of their hard work and ef­fort show for each and ev­ery project they have ac­com­plished.” The HIA–CSR Aus­tralian Home of the Year on Seaward Loop in Sor­rento. This Averna Homes res­i­dence was named the HIA–CSR Aus­tralian Spec Home of the Year.
