The 50th HIA Perth Housing Awards and HIA WA Kitchen and Bathroom Awards were recently held at Crown, recognising and celebrating the best of Perth’s residential sector.

“HIA WA has a rich and proud history of supporting the residential construction sector and the Perth Housing awards play a huge role in championing Perth builders, local manufacturers, suppliers, trades, contractors and everyone in between.”

HIA WA Executive Director Cath Hart said the awards were a timely reminder of the importance the residential building industry had in Western Australia’s post-Covid recovery:

“We went from 10,590 starts at the bottom of the post-mining boom cycle (2019/20), just before the COVID pandemic hit and now as a result of the grants, we’re well above pre-pandemic levels with WA to reach a total of 25,279 starts in 2021/22,” said Ms Hart.

“When you take into consideration the huge constraints in terms of shipping delays, depleted material stock and labour shortages, the standard of projects entered in this year’s awards reflects the high calibre of builders and designers we have in our region.”

The award went to bespoke builder Averna Homes.

The modern, resort-style home located in Applecross took out several awards, Ms Hart said the home was flawless:

“The stylish interior design selections and execution couldn’t be faulted, particularly evident in the stunning master ensuite and bathrooms, leaving the judges in awe.”

“The judges commented on how well this home executed a relaxed sophistication with a balanced blend of natural materials, colours and textures throughout the home, designed to perfection for the site with its corner aspect overlooking the waters of the Swan River,” Ms Hart said.

After receiving the award, Averna General Manager Paul Spatara spoke about the great pride he had in what his team had produced and the added significance of accepting this award on the 50th milestone of the Perth Housing Awards.

Aside from Perth Home of the Year, Averna Homes also won the John Pietersen Award for Custom Built Home of the Year, Outdoor Project of the Year, Residential Building Designer of the Year, and in the WA Kitchen and Bathroom Awards, won Bathroom of the Year. Kitchen of the Year was awarded to Promenade Construction.

Capozzi Building won Innovation in Lightweight Housing Project of the Year for its Bicton project.

Humphrey Homes was awarded Renovation/Addition Project of the Year for the remarkable transformation to one of the oldest homes in Peppermint Grove.
