2018 Master Builders Building Excellence Award Winners Custom Built Homes

Custom Built Homes - Less than 150m2

  • Inspired Building Group


This architecturally designed three-bedroom home combines energy efficiency and contemporary style to create a pleasing living space on a modest budget. The design is family friendly and practical, incorporating the clients’ need for multifunctional rooms. The astute design also benefits greatly from solar orientation, minimising the need for heating and cooling. The modest budget did not deter Inspired Building Group. Rather they diligently introduced inventive ways to deliver an energy efficient home without compromising on craftsmanship and quality. Energy efficiency (EER) of 8.2 was achieved on a restricted site, and a strict budget.

The brief was to create an energy efficient, light-filled, solar passive home with year round comfort. The result is a spectacularly modern home with contemporary techniques and technology ensuring ultimate convenience and enjoyment. Designed to stay cool in summer without air conditioning, the northern aspect along with the timber reveals, plywood ceilings and unique joinery also combine to create warmth and comfort in winter. Direct sunlight filters into all rooms responding to one of the clients “must have” features. And the reclaimed timber pergola not only adds interest to the build, it is also fully sympathetic to the older suburb.

  • R&A Andriolo,

  • DNA Architects


This Yarralumla project was a knock-down rebuild with the intention of constructing a unique contemporary family residence that better suited the needs of the family and focussed on entertaining. Most rooms are oriented to access northern sun and gather around the entertaining areas. Internal living areas open directly to the external entertaining area, creating a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor, formal and informal. The Upper floor hangs over the entry in a glass box, allowing the children’s wing to be connected to the ground floor rooms while being acoustically separated. Generous car parking and storage below compliment the outstanding design.

Industrial-inspired architectural features start you on the “WOW” factor discovery within this leafy Yarralumla home. The client requested an open plan design that seamlessly incorporated the outdoor pool and entertainment area. A wonderful alliance of creative talents delivered a home that exceeds all expectations in terms of liveability, flexibility and architectural beauty. High-gloss hydronically heated polished concrete floors inside and out, a spectacular cantilevered staircase in the entry, and the double-storey, two-way stone fireplace add to the distinctive characteristics. And that’s just the beginning of the list of outstanding features in this spectacular family home.
