Above, PSL Construction took out three top awards for this home in Dairy Flat: Auckland Supreme New Home Award, the New Home over $2 million category and the Craftsmanship Award. The home is described as “an exceptional build”, including achieving high quality detailing across a variety of complex and challenging materials.
Sentinel Homes, North & West Auckland, won the New Home $600,000–$750,000 category for this Matakatia home. Judges loved the way the U-shaped home snuggles into the bush-clad site.
This Orewa home won the Volume/Group Housing New Home, $450,000–$750,000 award for Legendary Homes. Judges particularly noted the timeframe and cost that the home was built within.
This Maddren Homes show home in Millwater won a gold award. Judges liked the way the black single-pitched pavilions contrast with ivory weatherboard pods. They also praised the “on trend” dark kitchen cabinetry and described the design as “the future of urban family living”.
