This light saturated Sydney home by Mackenzie Pronk, Kaintoch and Arent & Pyke has won the Master Builders Association of NSW Excellence in Housing Award.
September 2nd, 2016
The five bedroom, six bathroom Vaucluse house combines the designs of architects Mackenzie Pronk, and Kaintoch Design Studio, with interiors by Arent & Pyke, who worked with builders at Horizon Habitats at different stages. Horizon took out the Master Builders Association of NSW Excellence in Housing Award in the Contract Houses category for the completed home.
As for how the project came together, Kaintoch were engaged late in the home’s conception, and took on the task of curating the documentation and finalising construction and interior details. Working with the existing structural frame of Mackenzie Pronk, Kaintoch partnered with various consultants across the project, right down to the furniture and styling by Kriszta Gabor from Space Furniture.
Luxury internal finishes include a travertine feature wall, timber floors throughout, and a combination of natural stone and handmade tile slabs. The home is operated via Dynalite Smart Home – a complete automation system, which enables the residents to efficiently control settings including energy usage, security and lighting.
