HIA judges confirm their love of The Como’s “curves”

Posted on

The Como curves have been an eye-catching design feature in Denman Prospect since Classic Constructions built this display home. It has now captured the imagination of the Housing Industry Association (HIA).

The Como recently won the HIA ACT/Southern NSW Display Home of the Year and is now in the running for the national award.

Judges made their determination based on quality of workmanship, design effectiveness including environmental sustainability, innovation, plus visual and market appeal.

They praised the home’s “innovative and striking” design with “a floor plan to suit today’s modern family while ensuring flexibility for future generational living”.

Indeed, the four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom display home features several multi-functional spaces such as the lower-level living area. This area can be used as a third living area, kids’ rumpus, formal lounge, home office or even a self-contained unit with its own bedroom, bathroom and space for a kitchenette.

“Blending the timeless elegance of a curved facade, synonymous with deco architecture with modern design principles and functionality, this home is as practical and energy efficient as it is aesthetically pleasing”, the judges said.

Classic Constructions Director Jason Tanchevski said the award was an exciting recognition for the team.

“Our whole team feels a sense of pride. Now that we have been acknowledged with the Display Home of the Year award, it’s an extremely satisfied and proud bunch we have at Classic, and is validation for the hard work and commitment that everyone produces in developing an award-winning project.”

Of course, this is not a first for the company, which has been building homes in Canberra for nearly 40 years.

“We are proud to say that we won our first HIA award back in 1992. We have continually won excellence awards with the HIA on a consistent basis ever since. There would be more than 40 HIA awards over the years,” says Jason.

While the competition is tough for the national title, he is crossing his fingers for success.

Winning Display Home of the Year signifies the quality of “our efforts to innovate our ideas and experience into a Display Home project, where we have an opportunity to produce a product that showcases what we can do”.

“We have always tried to use each Display Home we build as the opportunity to implement new ideas, new building methodology, techniques and our quality to demonstrate to the public what can be achieved.”

The Como stands out from the competition based on its commanding curved elements at the front of the house, which continue through a number of design elements inside.

But Jason said the thought and foresight that went into the layout is what really sets it apart.

“The split-level nature of the home design allows it to take advantage of the site and the upper floor area has uninterrupted views over the Molonglo Valley. The indoor/outdoor connection from the main living area to the oversized deck and alfresco area provides a seamless entertaining or relaxed living environment.”

The hundreds of visitors to The Como have provided extremely positive feedback, attracted to the unique design concept and quality finish throughout.
