Take inspiration from ZAC Homes Award Winning Displays!

   |   By  |  0 Comments

We love seeing the joy when construction begins on a customer’s new home and their excitement when we handover the keys. Nothing beats it. But there’s something that comes close and that’s being recognised for our excellence in design and craftsmanship.

That’s why the HIA Awards are so special and we’re very excited to announce that the ZAC Homes team won 2 in 2020!

HIA Best Kitchen and Display Home, 2020

In Marsden Park, our California Design won Best Kitchen and Display Home.

With a design brief to create something unlike other project homes, this home offers 4 good sized bedrooms – 3 on the first floor and 1 on the ground floor with access to a private courtyard.

The general theme for the California interior was taken directly from its mid-century inspired façade. Throughout the home you’ll find natural elements of stone and timber however the kitchen and alfresco areas are the standouts.

The kitchen has an island bench that’s 3m wide x 1m deep to form the central hub of your home and provide a vast area for entertaining and food preparation. But it’s the aesthetics of the island that you may find most appealing. Waterfall ends and a unique bronze mirrored kickboard gives the island a floating appearance.

The design of the California’s kitchen is topped off with a matt black undermount sink and matching tapware. This is repeated in the Butler’s Pantry where the materials and finishes in the kitchen are repeated.

The alfresco area has a complete kitchen with Bio-Wood spotted gum on the ceiling for a dramatic and stylishly different look. For a seamless transition from inside to out, we designed something quite unique –  recessed stacker doors that disappear into the wall cavity.

In all, the California was recognised by the HIA for its bold, edgy, modern and totally liveable design as well as the quality workmanship that can be seen throughout.

Designed with young families and empty nesters in mind, the Sorento has a kitchen with real WOW factor as well as function.

When choosing the colour palette, we used the 2018 Pantone Colour of the Year (Ultra Violet) and the 2019 Pantone Colour of the Year (Living Coral). For warmth, we introduced copper tones in the undermounted sink, mixer tap, upper cabinets, splashback tiles, island pendants and in a cut out feature on the front of the island.

But this is just the beginning of the stylish features you’ll find throughout. The Sorento is also on display at Marsden Park.

Judging Criteria

While winning these awards is exciting for us, it should also provide confidence that you’re in safe hands. That’s because the judging criteria emphasises quality workmanship and design effectiveness ahead of visual appeal.
