A home featuring Bristile Roofing roof tiles won the HIA Hunter Display Home of the Year award at the recent HIA Hunter Housing and Kitchen & Bathroom Awards.
Organised by the Housing Industry Association, Australia’s peak industry body in the residential building sector, the prestigious awards celebrate innovation in craftsmanship and excellence in construction, design and housing technology amongst members in all sectors of the residential building industry.
Judged by a highly experienced team of building experts, the awards acknowledge the talent of the builders, designers, product manufacturers and building companies involved in the construction of quality houses, apartments, renovations and outdoor projects. The awards also showcase the latest trends in residential building and the best residential building products from across Australia.
The awards were given out by region and category according to the type of development. The winning design ‘Phoenix’ was developed by one of Australia’s largest and most respected residential builders, Metricon. Phoenix is a luxurious home largely focussed on a family-oriented open plan living design.
The Phoenix sets a new benchmark for residential home design with the intelligent floor plan perfectly positioning the five bedrooms and two bathrooms around living spaces. The meticulous attention to detail and the fastidious standards of the home’s finish were complemented perfectly by Bristile Roofing’s Classic range of concrete roof tiles.
Bristile Roofing roof tiles were selected for the project not only for their aesthetic and functional advantages, but also for the additional benefits of thermal mass, high solar reflectivity, low embodied energy and natural durability helping to give the home a great energy efficiency rating.
