Grand Designs: House of the year awards 2022/23

As a gold sponsor of the 2022/23 annual Grand Designs House of the Year Awards, we are thrilled to have played a key role in recognising and celebrating exceptional residential architecture in Australia.

The Awards ceremony was held on the 30th of March amidst carefully selected contemporary designer furniture, with ambient lighting highlighting the distinctive features of our Sydney showroom. It provided the ideal backdrop for the annual HOTY Awards night, encouraging guests to mingle with others in the industry and celebrate each other's work over drinks and canapés.
