HIA-CSR Australian Home of the Year


Queensland home wins HIA’s highest national housing award!

JW Constructions in Queensland won the pinnacle award at this year’s HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards, presented with the award for HIA-CSR Australian Home of the Year award for a skilfully architectural home that reveals open-plan at its finest.

The Housing Industry Association (HIA) Awards were announced on the 23rd of April before an audience of industry leaders and home-building consumers.

Queensland’s Award-Winning Home

The winning home’s combination of board-formed concrete paired with warm wood-grained accents creates an inviting interior. Outside, natural greenery drapes elegantly from the expansive upper-level gardens, a verdant and tranquil contrast to the angular lines of the home.

At the heart of the home is the central courtyard and north-facing swimming pool. Submerged views can be enjoyed from the lower-level rumpus area and the temperature-controlled wine cellar. The home also won the HIA Australian Custom-Built Home, partnered by Beacon Lighting.

The Australian Housing Awards recognised exceptional projects by builders and designers from all around Australia. Here are some of the winners:

Wagga-based (NSW) building company P.A.H Innovative Construction was named HIA Australian Professional Small Builder / Renovator for their continued commitment to apprentices and students, having provided work placements to eight students in the past 12 months and employing school-based apprentices. The category is partnered by Companion Systems.

Victoria’s Rebecca Bishop from Elite Building Services won HIA Australian Business Partner, partnered by HIA Insurance Services, for being a true all-rounder in her business, local community and in giving back to the building industry. This is the second time Rebecca has won the HIA Australian Business Partner award, previously being awarded in 2020.

Critharis Constructions in NSW won HIA Australian Renovation / Addition Project for an impeccable five-bedroom home spanning three levels. The difficult renovation was applauded by the judging panel for its complexity. The category is partnered by COLORBOND steel.

A stunning residential alfresco and pool area which cascades over many levels won WA’s Averna Homes the HIA Australian Outdoor Project award. A curved-wall infinity edge pool enhanced the complexity.
