Winner: Split Building Custom Built Home Up to $600,000
Central to the design of this stylish architect-designed home is a double height void with gallery space on the upper level leading to the bedrooms. The kitchen is tucked under the bedrooms on the ground floor and leads onto a fully equipped outdoor entertaining area. Timber has been used along with cladding to add warmth to this light and bright home.
Winner: Solitary Designer Homes Custom Built Home $600,000 to $1 million
Lightweight construction and generous use of louvred windows were the perfect choice for this seaside house, allowing it to make the most of the north-easterly breezes. Designed to step down the site in three parts to manage height issues without losing out on ocean views, there are separate areas for the children and adults, offering easy access to the decks and pool. Working with a sloping site had its challenges but the result is a stunning contemporary family home.
Winner: Hammerhead Building Projects Custom Built Home $1 million to $2 million
Taking inspiration from the owner's Japanese heritage, this home in the Byron Bay hinterland is a collection of separate wings connected by a low-profile roofline. The floorplan has been designed for flexibility, with living areas positioned to take advantage of the north and easterly aspects while also being able to open up to the south for better cross-ventilation. Natural materials dominate in this beautifully crafted house, including stone and Australian timbers.
Winner: Bellevarde Constructions Custom Built House over $4 million
As impressive as it is, it's the work you cannot see that makes this Point Piper house designed by Durbach Bloch Jaggers so exceptional. Extensive excavation and underpinning anchor this four-level off-form concrete harbourside home into place. Punctuated by double-storey voids and angled balconies, the house has a 7m-wide glass roof made from a single piece of glass that had to be craned into position. It has a smart-home system, underfloor heating, sauna and triple car stacker.
