On the sustainable side, Hemp Homes Australia won this year’s GreenSmart Sustainable Home for their project in Witchliffe made from locally manufactured hempcrete.

Valmadre Homes claimed the South West Home of the Year for their property in Eagle Bay, which also won the Custom Built Home over $1.5 million category and Custom Built Home of the Year.

HIA WA executive director Cath Hart said the judges were impressed with many facets of the Eagle Bay property.

“A big congratulations to Valmadre Homes for creating this striking and cleverly designed home,” Ms Hart said.

“It’s easy to see why this home stood out to the judges — all areas are well-orientated, and the selection of materials is flawless.

“This home capitalised on the landscape views from the spacious living area and kitchen, and the selection of feature lighting.”

Ms Hart said the judges praised the great attention to detail in the finishes and its seamless integration within the existing landscape.
