Coastal Exposure attracted Best New Residential Design 500K-1M at the awards night. Created by Dean Picken of Designers By Nature, the home sits atop a sand dune with unimpeded ocean views, outdoor areas placed to address the changeable weather and a suspended guest wing that provides a sense of drama on approach.

Paula Hanley, chair of the judging panel, said the designers were recognised for creating a stunning and innovative development adapted to its surroundings.

Planet Homes Display, by Trevor Reitsma of Reitsma + Associates took out the Best New Residential Design up to $500K category. Nestled on a 480m² lot, the Queensland display home has a multi-level layout expressed via horizontal planes and broad overhangs. The layout, wrapped in glass and courtyards, gives a point of difference.

The judges commented that the project pushes the boundaries of display homes.
