    Sydney practice wins Master Builder of the Year

    A Sydney builder – a regular collaborator with some of Australia’s leading architects – has received the top award at the recent Master Builders Association (MBA) of NSW Excellence in Housing Awards.

    Horizon took home the title of Master Builder of the Year at the annual awards program that showcase the very best in residential building, high-quality workmanship and innovation.

    They were also awarded separately for two of their projects: Watsons Bay Residence and Manly II Residence.

    Watsons Bay Residence, designed by Bruce Stafford Architects and interior designer Hare + Klein, is a beachside home at Sydney’s Camp Cove Beach. Difficult site access and the need for a basement below water level meant the project required a high level of coordination and collaboration. The home features a material palette of off-form concrete, steel and timber. It was the recipient of the 'Contract Houses –  $12 Million+’ category at this year’s awards.

    Manly II Residence, designed by architects PopovBass, boasts curved, cantilevered, off-form concrete and large glass panels. The extremely tight site made it difficult to handle materials, and scaffolding had to be cantilevered out over the footpath to allow for pedestrian access. The home took out the ‘Contract Houses – $4 Million to $4.5 Million’ category.

    “We really respect the design process and it was an absolute pleasure collaborating with everyone involved,” says David Moses, Horizon’s managing director. “We’re committed to delivering the highest quality, year in and year out, for our valued clients.”
