Manawatu & Whanganui
Supreme Winners Announced

On Friday night we announced the Manawatu & Whanganui House of the Year winners for 2021. 

This year, there were 18 beautiful homes entered from around the Manawatu & Whanganui region. The much anticipated event was celebrated at the Awapuni Racecourse and was a fantastic evening of celebration. We hope everyone who attended had a great night. 

Supreme House of the Year

EHAUS MANAWATU
For a Home in Feilding

This home also won the New Home $1.5 Million - $2 Million Category, Pink Batts Craftmanship Award, APL Sustainable Excellence Award, Kitchen Excellence Award, and a Gold Award.



This home is a stunning build with a delightful architectural flare. The design is beautifully elongated to allow all the rooms to open out into the expansive views over the Manawatu plains. Given the extraordinary length of the house, it has been broken down into individually distinct pavilions - a unique but effective design. 

The home stands out due to the exquisite materials used, these include a German high-density fibre, precast concrete, cedar, and Otago shist that has been specially cut to fit into the home. It seamlessly integrates multiple exterior claddings and flush negative detailing throughout the inside.  

An impressive aspect of the build is the premium thermal and highly efficient building envelope that will keep the homeowners comfortable and warm. This is a real credit to the team; they have strived to produce an excellently crafted home as well as a design that provides many benefits to the owners. 

This home has been designed and built to meet the rigorous international passive house institute performance standards for full certification. eHaus did a fantastic job at producing a home beyond these standards, all while creating a quality build and architecturally designed home

Supreme Renovation of the Year

ONSLOW CONSTRUCTION AND DESIGN
For a Home in Palmerston North

This home also won the Renovation Up to $500,000 Category, and a Gold Award.


This is a lovely home that has integrated the new with the old seamlessly. The decision to move the originally disjointed kitchen and living area to the rear of the house was a stroke of genius. The outdoor access has also been moved which creates a nice indoor-outdoor flow. 

This renovation has been done with style and function in mind. The inviting, open plan kitchen, dining, and living area has helped to modernise the home. Important attention to detail has been paid to ensure the matching windows were done to an expert level. 

The addition of an ensuite to the bedroom has been done very well. Overall all the work on the house has been done with sympathy, with strong references to the original house.
