Judges Comments
Tony Koia's design uses a conventional plan which has been refined to give excellent living and bedroom spaces, together with a large north-facing verandah.
This is a strong design and shows how a simple and complying affordable house can be a stylish and attractive home.

This Starter Home Entry looks to create a simple, flexible and expandable house solution suitable for first home buyers or retirees. The modern and open plan living room has glazed walls to capture sunlight, to be stored in the thermal mass of the floor and can be redistributed throughout the house. The layout allows for flexibility of use, initially as a three bedroom home plus study or a two bedroom home with bathroom, ensuite and study.
Additional bedrooms, carport or garaging can be added when and if required with minimum disruption to the initial home.
