BAYSIDE DESIGN A WINNER
A Brisbane builder has won the coveted HIA Queensland Home of the Year award for a stunning, custom-built house in Cleveland.
Castle Glenn Homes beat 10 other finalists to take out the title, in what was a hotly contested category.
The developer also won the Custom Home category.
Described as “architecturally-designed for the block with a beautiful aspect looking up the canal out onto the ocean”, the timeless and elegant home included natural textures and finishes throughout.
Acting HIA Queensland executive director Michael Roberts said the category winners showed the industry had delivered quality projects that would stand the test of time.
“The evidence of this year’s winners shows they have risen to the challenge,” he said.
Condev Constructions won the Apartment of the Year category for its Temple Palm Beach development, while Aria Property Group took out the Apartment Complex category for its The Melbourne Residences complex at South Brisbane.
The Best Affordable Housing category was won by Stylemaster Homes, while Eco Essence Homes took out the GreenSmart Sustainable Home title and Planet Homes won for best Display Home.
Saltair Constructions took out the Innovation in Housing category for its use of contemporary style and architectural design with sustainable materials and methods.
The house was built off-site in about eight weeks before being transported and assembled in just one day.
Verandah House Interiors and Mosaic Property Group each took out top awards in residential interior design categories.
Plantation Homes was awarded the Queensland Professional Builder, Major Builders title.
