15 HIA Awards in 2020 and Counting

by Giorgi. Posted in Latest News

At Giorgi we’re proud to announce that we’ve just won a swag of awards in the 2020 Perth HIA Housing Awards
and HIA Kitchen and Bathroom Awards.

It was a glamorous evening of celebration for the industry and a proud night for team Giorgi as we reflected
on a busy and rewarding year despite the disruption of COVID.

Giorgi’s awards included the winner of the 2020 Perth Home of the Year for our City Beach residence, winner
of the Apartment of the Year for Echelon, South Perth and winner of the prestigious Peter Overman Award
for Innovation in Housing for our Caversham residence. Giorgi was also nominated finalists in 13 other categories.

Winning the top award, the 2020 Perth Home of the Year, was particularly gratifying. It was even more pleasing
that it was for a City Beach home owned by our lead architect Gavin Hestelow.

HIA WA Executive Director Cath Hart said this home left a lasting impression.


“The judges commended the home’s architecture, taking into account the execution of a striking minimalist
elevation, despite the challenges of a sloping site,” she said.

“The finishes throughout the home flawlessly enhance the warm ambience, while the living space has been
to optimise natural light, with the main roof of the home forming a series of fixed skylights with
curved ceiling
linings for additional brightness.

“The contemporary design is complemented by the use of off-form concrete, polished plaster
and curved cabinetry arches.

“The home contains a range of sustainable features, including the use of low maintenance
materials, and has
utilised the orientation of the block by maximising the northern sunlight and
solar principles,”
she added.

Here’s a full list of Giorgi’s awards and finalist nominations.
