Master Builders House of the Year 2022 is the gift that keeps on giving with two of our houses making the Top 100.

Design Builders Waikato and Design Builders Hawke’s Bay are proceeding to the National finals after making the top 100 for “a Home of Two Halves” and “Pure Genius”.  We are thrilled for Tara, Trent, Jeff and the rest of the Design Builders team involved and congratulate them for this incredible accolade.

The Top 100 homes in the country achieve Gold Reserve status each year, and proceed to the National Finals.

With its narrow sloping site, this three-bedroom beach retreat is a stellar example of creativity and craftmanship. To deliver on the homeowners’ brief, while maximising site coverage, two side-by-side pods were created, slightly stepped down from each other and cleverly linked by a breezeway.

Nestled amid bush-clad hills, this Havelock North home provides a lovely place to dwell, linger and connect with friends and family. Slate blue-grey cladding, charcoal joinery and corrugated roofing lend understated elegance to the exterior. This is enhanced by rock work, landscaping and sculptures placed on the front lawn. Click here to view more photographs.
