Cairns Builders La Spina Homes were named National Residential Builder of the Year at Master Builders Australia’s National Excellence in Building and Construction Awards 2015 held on Saturday night.

La Spina Homes have been building amazing homes for decades. As one of North Queensland’s original building companies they have a reputation for quality and service.

The winning home, aptly named ‘The Edge’, is set high on the side of a hill and is all about the spectacular view. The spacious master suite opens onto an outdoor lounge area seemingly suspended over the valley.

La Spina Homes also won the Master Builders Australia National Luxury Project Home Award in the over $2 million category for their work on this outstanding home.

“The home not only boasts spectacular views but is cleverly built to take full advantage of its surrounds. La Spina Homes have created a luxurious home that makes the most of the outdoor spaces,” Wilhelm Harnisch CEO of Master Builders Australia said.

“The house is magnificent whilst remaining contemporary, a spotted gum screening at the entry hides the surprise beyond. The home is conceived as a large living room which literally stretches into the horizon over the sea,” he said.

An outdoor dining area seamlessly extends from the indoor kitchen and living areas. Frameless glass pool fencing ensures uninterrupted views over the pool and accompanying views.

“There are so many elements of the design that are flawless, the Pilbara dreamtime marble which softens the concrete walls, beams and ceiling as well as the dining tables which were poured in-situ and clad with marble,” Wilhelm Harnisch said.

“La Spina Homes should be proud of the unique and spectacular project that they have built. It definitely makes them worthy to be named National Residential Master Builder of the Year. Congratulations to La Spina Homes,” Wilhelm Harnisch said.
