Highgate Hill Residence Wins Brisbane’s House of the Year

Highgate Hill riverfront residence stuns judges of Master Builders Brisbane Housing and Construction Awards and bags the 2019 House of the Year award.

This is a great year for MCD Construction as they win big at the annual Master Builders Brisbane Housing and Construction Awards. Apart from bringing home the most coveted House of the Year prize, they also won the Individual Home $1.26 million – $2 million award for the build as well as the Refurbishment/Renovation $750,000 – $5 million prize for their Walter’s Steakhouseproject in the Brisbane CBD.

Judges lauded the award-winning Highgate Hill residence for its clever design and excellent use of the riverfront location. They also cited how the home integrated ample open living space and great liveability.

The prized home’s design is incredibly thought out as it incorporates various materials. These include timber, steel, and concrete block that seamlessly blends in with the environment through the addition of greenery. Furthermore, adding a simple frog pond at the house exterior makes the home even more inviting and aesthetically pleasing.
