Timber, natural light and open-plan living – sounds like a winning combination. Unsurprisingly so, the builder of this Queenscliff home, Lawson and Lovell, has won the national Master Builders Awards for the $800K – $1M category. Following the design of Mark Korgul and Evan Howard of Watershed Design, a Manly based architectural firm, the project was realised over the course of six months. The result? A three-bedroom house with an office, an open-plan kitchen and dining area fit for great entertaining. Scroll through to tour the rest of this award-winning home.
