The HIA awards are presented by Australia’s largest residential building organization. One of the highest profile events on the building industry calendar, these awards are highly coveted by every builder and developer in the residential market, also providing additional exposure for successful businesses.
The awards will take place on Friday the 23rd of May, 2014.
Chateau’s nomination is for the Australian Custom Built Home category. Their nominated work is for the custom built and designed 'Wahroonga House' designed by architect Peter Allison. The home was also a winner earlier this year receiving three HIA awards for New South Wales including 'Best Custom Home NSW'. The win ensured they were automatically entered as national finalists.
Conceived out of the client’s brief for a house that reflected a European modernist architecture, the substantially glazed and cedar-clad custom built home was a standout entry. It offers an inclusive, open and inviting hub for a maturing family with four children. Its open layout is another key feature, inviting the surrounding landscape into the home through north and east facing glass doors. When opened, the walls appear to dissolve and the upper level to hover above.
‘Receiving national recognition for the unique design and build of this beautiful home just with a nomination is a great achievement for us' said company architect Roderick McDonald. 'It’s an exciting validation of the time and commitment our talented team of architects, designers, cost consultants and builders put into, the entire design and build process and of course in translating the unique style and vision of our clients.’
