Master Builders House of the Year Awards 2021 saw HAMR Home again awarded for our consistently high standard of quality new build homes.  We entered two properties, one in the New Homes $600 thousand to $750 thousand Category which was built in the Wharekaho Subdivision at Simpson's Beach.  The other was in the over $2 Million Category and is a canal front property in the Whitianga Waterways. 


The Waterways home is architecturally designed by Brendon Gordon Architecture.  This 477sqm three-bedroom home presides over a double corner section bordered by the canal.  The Hinuera stone, weatherboard and cedar-clad house wraps an in-ground pool in a central courtyard.  Inside you'll find more solid timber - floors, kitchen features and built-in oak furniture.  The house opens to decking on two canal fronts and has a hot tub on the lower level.  Sustainability was high on the owners' list, so you'll find solar panels, which heat the home as well as the pool in summer.  Coastal living at it's finest.  We won a Gold Award for this property and we also made it through to the National Level of the competition, receiving a Gold Reserve Award, meaning it is in the top 100 houses in New Zealand for 2021. 


'Home by the Bay' in Wharekaho was designed by Studio 77 in conjunction with HAMR Home.  With an effortless combination of coastal chic and country charm, this four-bedroom home sits surrounded by lush lawn and attractive landscaping within its huge north-east facing section.   Clad in vertical cedar shiplap weatherboard with good-looking stone features and a black corrugated coloursteel roof, the house blends in beautifully with its coastal bush.  The entrance and outdoor living porticos are positioned perfectly to take in teh views.  The main suite is simply sublime with a sliding door leading to the outdoors and large windows overlooking the bay view.  Built to achieve maximum results in  a cost-effective way, the impeccable dwelling has delivered on everything the owners wanted for their coastal dream home.  We won a Gold Award for this property and also we were awarded the Regional Category Winner for Auckland, Northland and Coromandel.  

This was another very successful year for HAMR Home at the Master Builders House of the Year Awards.  

















2019 was another successful year for HAMR Home at the Registered Master Builders House Of The Year Awards.  This year we entered two properties, one in the New Homes $750 thousand to $1 Million Category which was built in the Whitianga Waterways.  The other was our own new family home built on the Beachfront in Whitianga. 

The Waterways home was designed in a "minimalist" white on white style.  The crisp white exterior features four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a separate powder room and a double garage.  This home received a Gold Award and overall Category Winner in the Auckland, Northland and Coromandel Regions.  It also took out a lifestyle award for Bathroom Excellence over the entire Region and accross all price ranges, which was a great honour.  We made it through to the National Level of the competition, receiving a Gold Reserve Award, meaning it is in the top 100 houses in New Zealand for 2019. 

The New "Home of HAMR+A" stands proud on a large waterfront section with almost 360 degree views.  The upper open-plan living area has four metre high Raking Ceilings, a huge kitchen with honed granite and oak benches, a walk-in pantry, master bedroom with ensuite and a separate powder room.  This home also received a Gold Award in the Northland, Auckland and Coromandel Region so it was a very successful night for us and something we and our team are very proud of.








In 2018 we entered the "Castle Boatshed" into the Master Builders House of the Year Awards.  This is stage one of a two staged project for one of our local architectural designers "Studio 77".  We were absolutely delighted to receive a Gold Award in the $450,000 to $550,000 New Homes Category.  Designed in the style of a humble boatshed, this home is much more clever than meets the eye at first glance.  The cedar-clad dwelling includes everything you could need for high-end living and entertaining, from summer through to winter.  Designed to pack plenty into a 219 sqm footprint, the 'boatshed' responds well to the needs of its owners and guests.  This expertly executed, cost-conscious build achieved a score of 93% for workmanship. 














In 2016 we decided to Enter Two Houses in the Master Builders House of the Year Awards.  The Balsom Residence, Wharekaho and the Taylor Residence on the Whitianga Waterways.  The houses were in different categories but both did exceptionally well.


The Balsom Residence won a gold award in the Auckland Regional Competition.  It was then selected to go through to the National Awards where we won a Gold Reserve Award in the Nulook New Home $650,000 - $1 Million Category.  This was the largest category in the competition and we were thrilled to again be recognized for our attention to detail and craftsmanship. For further information and to see why we did so well click here.

It was a last minute decision to enter the second house in the House of the Year Awards.  This home was the first of our projects using our own HAMR Home Plans.  This Plan was based on our showhome, the New Chum Design with a few changes to put the owners twist on it.  This home was entered into the Placemakers New Home $400,000 - $500,000 Category.  We won a Gold Award for this which we were so excited about.  We wanted to develop our own plans so that we could demonstrate to clients that you can build fantastic houses within a reasonable budget while still maintaining exceptional quality.  This award was further evidence that here at HAMR Home we build your home with the same attention to detail and very high standards of craftsmanship regardless of the budget.
