The last few weeks have been something to celebrate at Metricon with two of our unique home designs being recognised by industry awards.

Last month, we were ecstatic to have the Housing Industry Association award us with the Australian Display Home of the Year Award at the 2015 HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards for the Chicago which is on display in South Australia.

These awards showcase the talent of the nation's top builders, designers and building companies with winners selected from state-based finalists with awards in 21 separate categories. The Australian Display Home Award recognises an individual house that is currently on display to the public.

The judges said of the winning home, "The Chicago is influenced by modern living. It delivers a striking sense of style, comfort and high quality craftsmanship. The timeless, classically-styled façade ensures a commanding street presence."

You can visit the Chicago 55 at Blackwood Park Estate, Craigburn Farm or explore it in the below video featuring one of our interior designers who can also give you tips on how to recreate the style of the award winning home. If you want further styling tips make sure you check out LookBook.

Then last weekend, one of our regional display homes – the Duxton 39 in Albury – was awarded with the title of Best Display Home over $400,000 at the 2015 North East Master Builders Regional Building Awards.

The Master Builders Association's judging panel were impressed with the spacious two storey, five bedroom plus a study design, and the fact that the Duxton 39 is a genuinely large family home that works on a site as narrow as 14 meters, and is available at a very attainable price.

This award winning home can be visited at Somerset Rise, Thurgoona or you can view this same home design in the video walkthrough below shot at The Avenue, Cranbourne.

We are extremely proud of these awards and are glad to share them with you. Of course, you can explore all of our unique home designs on our website. If you want to keep updated with all of our news and features then make sure you subscribe to our newsletter.
