2020 MBA 'Excellence in Housing' Award Winners! | 14 Oct 20

The Master Builders Association of NSW organises and promotes a comprehensive awards program for the building and construction industry, incorporating the residential, commercial and civil engineering sectors.

Firstyle Homes are very excited to announce our Success at the 'Excellence in Housing' Awards on October 8, 2020.


Display Home of the Year
Norwood / Delta

This new award was hotly contested. When assessing display homes, the judges particularly look for good design, exceptional attention to detail, value for money and how adaptable a home is to suit multiple-facing sites to maximise the aspect for the living areas in the home. The judges poured over the winners of the display home categories but eventually decided on the Norwood by Firstyle Homes because this home amply satisfies the criteria. The Norwood/Delta suits a multi-generational family with its three spacious ground floor living areas, four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The judges wish to congratulate Firstyle Homes on the Norwood/Delta and the other quality homes that it submitted in this year’s awards.

Display Home $350,001 - $400,00

This was another keenly contested category and the standard of entry was exceptionally high, which made the task of choosing a winner difficult for the judges. In judging a display home, the judges essentially look at the design, the adaptability of the design to suit varying aspects and how it is put together (the workmanship).

The Norwood/Delta ticks all boxes. The design features flexible open-plan living with three spacious ground floor living areas, four bedrooms, two first floor living areas and a stunning under-the-main-roof alfresco. The design suits the multi-generational family. The ground floor kitchen has a highly practical “butler’s” food prep workspace and ample storage in the walk-in pantry. The workmanship displays attention to detail, making the Norwood/Delta a worthy winner.

Display Home  up to $250,000

Keswick / Sorell

The objective of the KESWICK display home is to showcase a market-relevant, single-level affordable home with distinctive features as an option. The open-plan living is suitable for a narrow block of 12.5m and features four bedrooms, two living areas, two bathrooms, a double garage and an alfresco. The skillion ceiling to the open family room demonstrates the ease of expanding the vertical space, which creates a comfortable, airy and light-filled living area.

A distinctive feature is the angled transom window, which increases the internal visual space, replicates the skillion ceiling design, adds valuable light without compromising privacy and, with the ceiling line continued through to the alfresco, a grand space is created. As with all of the winners, the builders’ craft and finishes are first class.
