2018 Excellence in Housing Awards
Koichi Takada Architects and J Group Projects have won ‘Housing – $6 million and over’ category at 2018 Excellence in Housing Awards for the housing project ‘The Waterfront Retreat’ in Newport.
The Waterfront Retreat is the epitome of an Australian dream home, adorned with a private beach, garden, and open-plan living.
Responding to the clients’ brief – a house offering sanctuary and entertainment, the Waterfront Retreat is designed to allow nature to lead, offering maximum seclusion and connection to its surrounds and outlook.
Judges of the Excellence Awards commented that “The site was challenged by a steep slope with restricted access. Materials handling and the method of delivery required both excellent skills in project management and construction. The design took into account surrounding water views, landscape and the necessity for privacy due to its exposure to the bay. The level of quality workmanship and materials used are exceptional. A superb building.”.
