Inside Australia’s home of the year

JW Constructions in Queensland has won the HIA-CSR Australian Home of the Year award for a beautifully designed home that showcases open-plan living at its best.

The winning home features a combination of board-formed concrete with warm wood-grained accents that create an inviting interior. 

The main bedroom has a lush private garden and privacy screens cantilevered over the courtyard.

The joinery throughout the home has been expertly crafted with the residence fitted with the latest technology and automation system and a self-sustained battery generator.

Each room flows effortlessly, connecting the indoors and outside with an abundance of natural greenery falling from the upper-level gardens, down 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 judges were unanimous that the attention to detail in this home is outstanding.

They commented that the quality of finishes, building construction and workmanship is flawless.

The home was also named the winner of the Australian Custom Built Home.
