Master Builder of the Year 

First Impressions Projects Pty Ltd
Project: Somers
Designer: Selwyn Blackstone Architect

Photographer: John Tsialos, John Tsialos Photography

 

www.firstimpressionsprojects.com.au

This new build is a three-level home cut into a steep seaside site on the Mornington Peninsula. Every room in this house takes advantage of natural light and the spectacular location, providing views to the water. The lower ground floor comprises a home cinema, steam/powder room, and an indoor/outdoor living area that can be opened up with sliding doors, bringing the swimming pool, outdoor kitchen and living areas together. The middle level includes the main living and kitchen area, with cantilevered stairs allowing views to the bay and down to the pool. The upper floor encompasses the study and master bedroom suite, with the other three bedrooms located throughout the home, creating private spaces.





Regional Builder of the Year


Brooker Builders Pty Ltd
Project: Metung
Designer: Nic Van der Nol
Photographer: Brendan Pfanner, Brendan Pfanner Photography

www.brookerbuilders.com.au

Designed to maximise the occupier’s independence within the home, the construction entailed the mounting of a concrete ground slab on piers with timber/steel roof framing (and metal deck roof) with a suspended, reinforced-concrete floor slab to the upper level. The functions and serviceability was essentially established by the architect’s design. The design intent was to maximise passive solar access whilst capturing the lake views. Sustainability measures were a key requirement with ongoing maintenance costs minimised. Builder and architectural refinements to the design resulted in post tender savings which allowed the project to proceed. All refinements were undertaken without comprising the sustainability factors.

Best Renovation/Addition under $200,000


Latrobe Valley Building Services Pty Ltd
Project: Traralgon
Photographer: Belinda Riddle, Digital Devotion

www.lvbs.com.au

The works undertaken at this property included an extension to an existing residence to provide an entertainment area to suit the client’s lifestyle needs. The kitchen/dining room area features a modern, provincial, open-plan design, with beautifully polished floorboards and a high-pitched ceiling vault, complemented by a slate fireplace feature wall. This area also has a bay window looking out over the entertaining area, accessible through sliding timber doors. The client wanted to create an open-plan outdoor entertaining area and has achieved this by the addition of high-pitched ceiling with timber floor decking.




Best Renovation/Addition $200,000 - $300,000


Latrobe Valley Building Services Pty Ltd
Project: Sale
Photographer: Belinda Riddle, Digital Devotion

www.lvbs.com.au

This property called for a complete rebuild after a house fire destroyed the majority of the building. Renovations were conducted throughout the building, but salvageable areas were kept original without affecting the quality of the final presentation. The design of the rebuild has addressed the client’s lifestyle needs, and closely matched the old house style. The open-plan kitchen, lounge and dining area encompass everything needed to accommodate family and friends comfortably, including large bi-fold doors which open onto the back deck, allowing the option of being fully open to the outdoors, or being closed for more protection in the colder months.




Best Renovation/Addition $300,000 - $500,000


Grundella Constructions
Project: Cremorne
Designer: Michael Artemenko and FIGR Architecture
Photographer: Tom Blatchford

www.grundella.com.au

This project retains its heritage street front facade but transforms into an expression of modern design and materiality at the rear. The project called for partial demolition of the rear of the building, and replacement with a modernist, open-plan living, dining and kitchen area. An external deck extends the dining room, connected by an imposing, sliding window and screen. The existing structure also received a facelift, with new joinery, light fittings and an en-suite to the master bedroom. The laundry and main bathroom are hidden within flush joinery panels through the transition hallway. Raked ceilings, internal timber, fibre-cement cladding and sleek fittings and fixtures live in harmony with the well-designed flow and openness of the scheme.  




Best Renovation/Addition $500,000 - $750,000


Delco Developments Pty Ltd
Project: Balaclava
Designer: Biserka Resovac Architects
Photographer: Mary Grekos-Haber, Mary Greckos Photography

www.delcodevelopments.com.au

This 1887 double-fronted Victorian cottage has been skilfully and tenderly transformed from just another double-fronted Victorian cottage into an exquisite example of clever architecture, well-considered renovations/additions and high-quality works. Now the stand-out home on the street, the footprint on the ground level and first-level addition have been significantly increased and are discrete in their placement and external aesthetics, barely visible from the footpath. One of the major features of the home is the eclectic, artistically designed interior. Light shades and intelligent use of bold colours, timber, concrete, and skylights allows this home true brightness and artistic vision.  




Best Renovation/Addition $750,000 - $1M


Markus Builders Pty Ltd
Project: Richmond
Designer: Tony Vella, Rachcoff Vella Architecture


This renovation required the demolition of a two-storey addition to the rear of a heritage-listed clinker-brick dwellling, before adding a tri-level addition with a rooftop observation / entertainment space. The new accomodation consists of two new bathrooms and four modernised bedrooms. The design was quite complicated, with external brickwork that was built in an open flemish bond pattern to allow light to pass through windows. These windows have been located behind the brickwork rather than adjacent. The result is a top end finish with emphasis on specific architectural detailing. 




Best Renovation/Addition over $1M


Quality Built
Project: Mount Eliza
Designer: Alistair Lucas, Two First Names

www.qualitybuilt.com.au

Set amongst high quality homes in Mount Eliza and enjoying uninterrupted views of Port Philip Bay, this project involved the partial demolition of the existing home, refurbishment of the remaining home and the construction of a new architectural ground-andfirst-floor accommodation to meet the needs of the new homeowners. The existing 1960s clinker-brick house merged with the new extension, creating a modern home with four bedrooms: a master suite with private deck, oversized walk-in robe and ensuite, formal lounge, kitchen/dining area, scullery, laundry, study, billiard room with abutting cellar and powder room, an upstairs living room and a fully automated lift. An infinity- edge solar-heated pool completes the generous entertaining area creating a resort-like atmosphere to the new home.

Best Renovation/Addition over $1M


ACS Builders
Project: Flemington
Designer: Centrum Architects
Photographer: Mario Manuelpillai

www.acsbuilders.com.au

The design of this home is in two distinct halves. The front portion of the building, which is the original Victorian-styled, heritage-fronted single-story with pitched roof includes the convex verandah, double- hung windows, slate roofing and formal gardens. The rear portion of the building is a complete contrast to the front. Spread over three levels, its main elements are concrete, glass, steel and timber. There is a large focus on cantilevering construction; the first floor is cantilevered, and the building hovers over a five-metre piece of floor-to-ceiling glass.  




Best Display Home under $250,000

Project: Elvira 4-29, Cranbourne North
Photographer: Anna Carmody, UA Creative

Henley Properties
Project: Vienna 28, Point Cook
Designer: Henley Properties

www.henley.com.au

Exuding natural charm and sleek finishes, the Vienna is every bit as stylish as its namesake. Designed to accommodate a 14m-plus block, the home offers a floorplan that seems to stretch on forever, creating a space that’s easy to live in. The kitchen, dining and family zone can be enjoyed separately or opened to create one big, beautiful, connected space. Lined with windows, the home offers plenty of sunlight, and timber-stacker sliding doors open to the stunning alfresco area for summertime barbecues. The master suite at the front is well positioned away from the living areas with a walk-in robe and ensuite with a double vanity providing a secluded peaceful zone for the parents to enjoy.




Best Display Home $300,000 - $350,000


Simonds Homes
Project: Rio 2614, Taylors Hill
Photographer: William Hung, William Hung Photography

www.simonds.com.au

The house is designed to serve a growing family that entertains and is looking for a zoned layout. The Rio sports an efficient plan that includes four generous bedrooms, two bathrooms and two living areas that flow from the centrally located kitchen with the meals and family areas providing a central hub for entertainment. The Portland façade of this home displays a modern creation of the cottage style featuring the use of timber posts and base brick piers combining the old theme with the new. The entry porch is a reminder of the classic past combined with contemporary styling.




Best Display Home $350,000 - $425,000


Arden Homes
Project: Toledo Royale, Botanic Ridge

www.ardenhomes.com.au

A primary consideration for this dwelling was a balance between a well-designed home with high visual impact while avoiding overly complex construction techniques. The key requirement of the design brief was incorporating multiple living spaces that offer versatility whilst considering the zoning of these areas. On the ground level, the kitchen and side alfresco area separate the family living/dining zone from the study and formal lounge. Upstairs, a television area separates the master bedroom zone from the secondary bedrooms. Throughout the home quality fixtures, fittings feature extensively including Caesarstone benchtops and Methven tapware in the kitchen.




Best Display Home $425,000 - $500,000

Designer: Q Designer Homes Design Team
Photographer: Simon Draper, Top Snap Geelong

www.qdh.com.au

The standout feature of this single-storey home involves the three distinct zones offered, making this a perfect home for a busy modern family to live and entertain in. A central living and dining area flank the open-planned kitchen complete with butler’s pantry. The design has been based on a courtyard layout, making the most of the favourable north aspect and offering daylight through ample glazing. The home represents outstanding value given the level of detail, with high-end fittings, fixtures and quality of workmanship displayed throughout the home.



Best Display Home $500,000 - $750,000


Urbanedge Homes
Project: Autern 6-54, Cranbourne North
Photographer: Anna Carmody, UA Creative

www.urbanedge.com.au

Designed as a luxury home and envisioned for families wanting more from their everyday living, the Autern 6-54 features beautifully proportioned rooms, a spacious open-living layout and a striking contemporary design. The meals area acts as the central hub of the home, with its open-plan arrangement extending to the family, living, kitchen and alfresco areas through cleverly constructed zoning. The vast kitchen area is accompanied by a spacious butler’s pantry, doubling as an additional prep room and servery for any ‘master’ chef. Featuring four bedrooms, the master suite is perfectly positioned on the first floor close to a vast rumpus room and study nook.

The home features four bedrooms upstairs, along with an upstairs TV area with a study nook.

Cameron Construction
Project: Macs Cove
Designer: Brendon Cameron
Photographer: Ari Hatzis

www.cameronconstruction.com.au

Taking inspiration from designs of the 1950s this modern home also takes advantage of cutting-edge technology and materials. Glass was used for the external facade, creating a striking contrast to the surrounding pine forrest. A sleek, steel frame dominates the design. Internally, the limestone tiles and Japanese birch-timber core soften the industrial external facade. The house features an innovative modular design allowing both bedrooms to be opened up to provide an unimpeded view of all areas of the house’s interior and exterior. Alternatively, sliding doors and dividing screens can be used to segregate the bedrooms and create a cosy environment.

Project: Ocean Grove
Designer: Q Designer Homes Design Team

This particular home has been constructed by a team of experienced tradespeople, displaying the highest quality of finishes throughout the property.

Sinjen
Project: Brunswick East
Designer: Architecture Architecture
Photographer: Peter Bennetts, Bennetts Studio Pty Ltd

www.sinjen.com.au

In a row of workers’ cottages, this particular house stands out. The stepped parapet, centred window, side-lined door and entrance awning are in accord with the familiar, unassuming composure of the others. Yet here the materials, stark in their composition, have a distinctly 21st Century character, hinting at the contemporary home within. The palette of black, white and grey is carried throughout the house, lending tonal variation and spatial depth to an otherwise diminutive site. In the heart of the house, the living areas open onto a courtyard. The high-ceilinged corridors pinwheel out from this heart, establishing a sunlit centre around which most daily activity occurs. Upstairs, a warmer palette of timber floors and lining boards sets the tone for the private quarters.




Best Custom Home $1M - $2M

www.firstimpressionsprojects.com.au

Given its cliff-side location and the extreme weather facing of this three-level home, the quality of construction was paramount. Special details were developed to seal and protect the home. The balconies use a perimeter- formed stainless steel trough to protect from wind-blown water ingress. Special details include mitred wrap-around aluminium cladding, counter-levered stair with a 150-kg stair balustrades that continue through two levels, integrated pivot doors, large three-panelled main viewing window, seamless tiled bathrooms encapsulating the views beyond, integrated garage door, integrated photovoltaic panels placed for optimum sun gain and aesthetic view lines.

Carved into the crown of the hill, with distant valley views, the home adjoins a lavish pool and pool house overlooking extended landscaping and stone paving. With a material palette of handcrafted timber cladding, glazed cabinetry panels, large format stone tiled floors and featured rammed earth walls, the home combines gallery-like public spaces with warm and sophisticated areas for private retreat.

Centex Homes Pty Ltd
Project: Murrumbeena
Designer: Dan Cramer & Donna Reid, Cramer Design
Photographer: Amreet Gill, 3DVUE

www.centex.com.au

Embracing clever design solutions was essential to the success of this project due to the geometrics of the site. This has been achieved through open-plan living zones integrating indoors with outdoors through floor-to-ceiling picture windows and sliding doors. Living and kitchen areas and a main bedroom with ensuite located on the ground floor ensure accessibility of the house through all life stages. Upstairs, an additional living area, three bedrooms and second bathroom feature alongside a study, storage, and walk-in robes that hide the bulk of those necessary angles, while maximising the space plan. The carefully considered façade design responds sympathetically to the streetscape now and into the future.

Project: Mint Apartments, Port Melbourne
Designer: Wood Marsh Architecture

www.baysideconstruct.com.au

This project consists of 16 spacious apartments spread across four floors, enjoying either panoramic city views or gleaming bay views. Each residence offers an expansive floor plan with either a robust dark colour scheme or a bright light-hued palette, which showcases its premium, finishes throughout. The design consideration places a high emphasis on the relationship between the functionality of living and the luxury expected in a Port Melbourne residence. An integral part of MINT’s designs draws visual interest across the façade, with green-tinted glass and a custom mould for the precast panels. At first glance this might seem unusual, but this combination emphasises design sophistication as it reflects the sun and imitates the light on the water.



Best Integrated Housing Development


Pace Development Group
Project: The Icon, St Kilda
Photographer: Michael Gazzola, IMG.Co Pty Ltd

www.pacedg.com.au

The scope of work involved for The Icon was detailed. The building is created using six stacked boxes, each made up of different families of coloured powder- coated screens. The boxes don't fit neatly on top of each other, challenging the traditional balanced design of most buildings and adding something new to the skyline. The colour that corresponds to each box has been chosen to reflect the suburb as a whole, as well as tying the building into its environment and skyline. The colours become lighter the higher the building gets, endeavouring to become one with the sky.




Best Sustainable Home


Croft Wootton Construction Pty Ltd
Project: Somers
Designer: Rod Hannah and Associates
Photographer: Alison Hoelzer, Alison Hoelzer Photography

www.croftwootton.com.au

This house was built using many of the techniques from passive house constructions. This enabled it to achieve a 9.1 Star rating and a post blower door test measured the air infiltration rate at 1.6 air changes per hour, when the industry average is 15. Extra layers of insulation carefully installed, an internal impermeable wall membrane and external premium moisture barrier contributed to the air tightness. Ducted extractor fans and no ceiling penetrations reduced drafts further. The air tightness, coupled with quality double glazed argon gas filled uPVC windows, passive solar design and extra insulation means the house will require almost no heating and cooling. This fully electric house, with a photovoltaic system on the roof will be produce more energy than it uses making it truly zero carbon.




Best Kitchen under $40,000


Anderson Homes Pty Ltd
Project: Hawthorn East
Designer: Stephen P Kosa & Associates

www.andersonhomes.com.au

The client required a kitchen that would provide a workspace that extends to the outside, allowing easy catering for outdoor entertaining. The kitchen includes quality appliances, Ceasarstone benchtops and units displaying a two pack painted finish. The clean lines have been maintained to ensure that the clutter of everyday use was to some extent hidden, and given the actual size of the kitchen, the design actually blends seamlessly into a functional and sophisticated space.




Best Kitchen over $40,000


Anderson Homes Pty Ltd
Project: Kew

www.andersonhomes.com.au

This project called for a high-end kitchen that offered appeal, superb functionality and visual purpose.

www.bluestarliving.com.au

Being one of the most unforgettable rooms in the house, the master ensuite makes superb use of clean lines, clever detailing and impeccable styling, framing views over the valley and beyond from all aspects of the room. The cabinetry design is neutral; two-pack satin-finish white doors frame the views directionally between the recessed shower and the floating bath itself, all designed to interact with an open-plan bedroom creating a resort-style experience. The monolithic look of the home is enhanced by the application of the large-format grey tiles.
