Met­ri­con’s pop­u­lar Metro 31 home de­sign has proven it is one of Queens­land’s best, tak­ing out the ti­tle of best dou­ble-storey home in the build­ing de­sign and prin­ci­ples cat­e­gory at Stock­land’s re­cent an­nual Vibe awards.

On dis­play at Stock­land’s New­port com­mu­nity, the Hamp­tons-in­spired De­signer by Met­ri­con home won the award based on cri­te­ria in­clud­ing value for money, pre­sen­ta­tion, colour scheme, light­ing, kitchen and bath­room, and en­suite de­sign.

De­sign di­rec­tor Adrian Pop­ple said the ma­jor high­light of the Metro 31 was its in­tel­li­gent floor­plan pro­vid­ing fam­i­lies with an abun­dance of space, ideal for nar­row blocks just 10.5m wide.

“The Metro 31 has proven to be very pop­u­lar with cus­tomers want­ing to knock down and re­build on nar­row in­ner-city or ur­ban blocks and also with those build­ing in new es­tates where the land size is gen­er­ally smaller,” he said.

“Crit­i­cal to the de­sign is the home’s abil­ity to not feel nar­row and con­fined, de­spite its mod­est width. Upon en­try, the most ob­vi­ous fea­ture of the home is the pow­er­ful and im­pres­sive void that im­me­di­ately greets you – peo­ple ex­pe­ri­ence a sense of grandeur that is sim­ply not ex­pected in a home of this size.”

Mr Pop­ple said the in­tel­li­gently-de­signed dou­ble-storey house de­liv­ered four bed­rooms, in­clud­ing a lux­u­ri­ous main suite, a study nook, large in­te­grated liv­ing hub and a sec­ondary leisure or me­dia room up­stairs.

“And at the rear, the open-plan liv­ing area em­pha­sises what Met­ri­con does best – mas­tery of free-flow­ing spa­ces and in­door to out­door liv­ing,” he said.

“The use of stacker doors be­tween the out­door room and liv­ing room in this de­sign al­lows for that seamless tran­si­tion.”

Prop­erty de­vel­op­ers Stock­land also awarded Met­ri­con Homes the award for big­gest vol­ume builder in Queens­land at the third an­nual Vibe awards.

The Stock­land Vibe award-win­ning Metro 31 dis­play home with a Stam­ford fa­cade can be viewed at the New­port dis­play vil­lage in New­port, More­ton Bay, as well as The Sur­rounds in He­lensvale, Gold Coast, and Har­mony in Palmview, Sun­shine Coast.
