Auckland Region’s top House of the Year builds announced


A Campbells Bay home and a Northcote Point renovation have been announced as this year’s finest Auckland and Northland homes, winning Supreme Awards in the Auckland Registered Master Builders 2016 House of the Year competition.

Richard Davidson Builders Ltd won five regional awards with the Campbells Bay home, including the Auckland Registered Master Builders 2016 Supreme House of the Year, a Gold Award and Category win for the New Home over $2 million Award.

The company also won the Craftsmanship Award and the Heart of the Home Kitchen Award for the same property.

Haven Renovations Ltd was awarded the Auckland Registered Master Builders 2016 Supreme Renovation of the Year, a Gold Award, Category win for the Renovation Award over $500,000 and the Plumbing World Bathroom Excellence Award.

Judges called the winning new build an exceptional, traditionally-styled Cape Cod home, located on a beachfront section in Campbells Bay on Auckland’s North Shore.

“The location and shape of the site made for a challenging build. The construction required accuracy throughout, with a complex poured concrete and blockwork structure.

“The combination of multi-materials and extensive architectural detailing has required constant attention to achieve the outstanding level of construction with this home.

“The builder has created a beautiful home for the owners to enjoy for a very long time.”

Judges complimented Haven Renovations Ltd for its winning renovation, and were impressed by the high standard of workmanship that was maintained throughout the construction of the project.

“The stunning views across the harbour to Auckland city have been well captured from almost every room in the house. A clever design and innovative detailing has produced a very functional and pleasant environment for the home owner to live, and work in.”

The results of the regional competition were revealed at a gala dinner at MOTAT Aviation Museum recently.

There were 45 Gold Award winners from Auckland and Northland which will now be judged against Gold Award winners from around the country to find the National Gold Reserve finalists.

National category winners and the Registered Master Builders Supreme Awards for the 2016 House of the Year and Renovation of the Year will be announced at a gala dinner on November 26 at The Langham in Auckland.

The Awards are made possible through the support of PlaceMakers, Master Build Services, GIB, Nulook, Future-Proof Building, Carters, Plumbing World, Resene and Bunnings Trade.
