With the right help and an open mind, you can transform your home into something rather remarkable. The winners of this year’s best home extensions stand as excellent examples of what’s possible. Read on to explore the projects and get inspired for your own. 
Gold Award: Full Coastal Home Renovation and Extension in Wellington by Nick Leko
This extension has done more than expand the home; it has established striking symmetrical frontage. The property is now balanced out by a second wing that replicates the original building, gable roofing and all. A coat of pale ocean-green paint freshens up the external weatherboard cladding. Meanwhile, the extension’s interior (which has become home to the kitchen and dining room) is crafted with a combination of white, light timber, and dark brown/black. This natural colour scheme creates a soothing atmosphere and, more importantly, draws all attention to the property’s view of the ocean.   

Silver Award: Renovated Villa Inspires Open-plan Living in Wellington by Steve Wang
Colour, texture, and space are the three key components of this spectacular villa renovation. After undergoing a sizeable extension and layout change, the home was rebuilt for open-plan living and polished with an eclectic interior design. The spatial modifications have allowed for a significantly larger kitchen and an additional bathroom. All the while, a combination of carefully selected materials make their way throughout the home, producing a quirky character that’s rather captivating.

Bronze Award: House Renovation and Loft Conversion in South London, England by Asif Hameed
This Edwardian mid-terrace home underwent an intensive renovation, eventuating in the addition of two bedrooms and a bathroom. The project involved converting the loft and refurbishing throughout the building to modernise all spaces. It required the work of several specialists, and the results indeed reflect their quality of craftsmanship. The classic yet contemporary interior design breathes fresh air into the home. And while the bedrooms make impressive extensions, the bathroom is particularly stunning, cloaked in pale blue subway tiling that catches the best of the sun from a new skylight.
