House of the Year - Excellence, Innovation, Support

We supply builders with the materials they need to do great work, so it’s only natural that we get excited about exceptional building projects. That’s why each year, we continue to be involved in the Registered Master Builders’ House of the Year competition by sponsoring the New Home $1 Million – $1.5 Million award category.

Recognising and celebrating the success of outstanding new builds encourages us all to aspire to achieve higher standards throughout the industry.

The House Company 


The House Company won this category for its Whangateau build in the Auckland/Northland/Coromandel region.

This ‘enchanting waterfront hideaway’, spans 175sqm and ‘embraces durability and charm, effortlessly blending with its natural surroundings’. Clad in elegant aluminium and darkstained vertical cedar, it is nestled among native trees and includes decorative feature screening. The expansive kitchen and living space seamlessly connect to the outdoor area through generous sliders, opening to a deck that spans the length of the home. An integrated Engel fire and louvre system creates warmth, while a glass balustrade provides unobstructed views of the estuary. Environmental sustainability was a key consideration, with an underfloor ducted recovery heat pump, while low-E glass and thermal heart aluminium joinery adding to the ‘architectural brilliance by the water’s edge’.
