East Coast & Hawke's Bay
Supreme Winners Announced

On Saturday night we announced the East Coast & Hawke's Bay House of the Year winners for 2021. 

This year, there were 12 beautiful homes entered from around the East Coast & Hawke's Bay region. Due to the country being in lock down we unfortunately had to cancel the event planned in Hastings on Friday 20 August. With the Top 100 needing to be announced on Monday 23 August to give us enough time for these lucky 100 homes to be judged in time for the national event on 20 November, we unfortunately are unable to reschedule, so we went virtual.

 

Supreme House of the Year

REDMOND BUILDERS
For a Home in Hastings

This home also won the Resene New Home Over $2 Million Category, Pink Batts Craftsmanship Award, APL Sustainable Excellence Award, and a Gold Award.

 
 

Excellent design and attention to detail is present in every aspect of this house. There is a welcoming entry, and the layout of the living areas and bedrooms are well-positioned for the sun and the semi-rural outlook. The complex concrete elements and roof structure has been constructed with precision, and the exterior cladding has been beautifully fitted. The tiling and wall finishes, which have been installed to a very high standard, also deserve a special mention. 

The positioning of the precast concrete walls and fireplaces was undertaken with precision at the beginning of this project, alongside the framing and structural beams that required significant planning and careful execution. Horizontal cedar weatherboards and the tray roofing have been set out and executed perfectly, with the same care being evident in the installation of the complex cavity sliders and metal door frames.

Supreme Renovation of the Year

AINSWORTH AND COLLINSON
For a Home in Napier

This home also won the Renovation $500,000 - $1 Million Category, Kitchen Excellence Award, and a Gold Award.

 

This build was a magnificent team effort from the owner, architect, and builder to ensure that this home could stand proud for another century while retaining its colonial heritage. Whilst the work done to this house is sympathetic to the original character, it introduced a number of 21st-century features. Subtle material changes and in-depth planning has allowed the owners to enjoy a contemporary modern style.   

This kitchen has been designed to meet the lifestyle and entertaining needs of the owners. It is spacious and functional, and lots of thought has been given to the lighting and ventilation. The door handles and drawers have been well considered to suit the style of the original house. There has also been innovative use of tiles and light cabinets, and a standout feature is the contrasting veined quartzite stone benchtop. The workmanship of all elements is of the highest quality.
