The win was a coup, ahead of a string of high-end builders across the entire Brisbane region.

Munro Designed Homes director Chris Munro said he couldn’t have been happier with the result.

“We’re thrilled to have taken out this prestigious award,” Mr Munro said.

“We’ve carved out a niche market in the Redland Bayside region delivering custom homes that work seamlessly with the Bayside lifestyle and this award is recognition of that.

“Our Galleon home stood out from the competition with a thoughtful design and clever use of materials which sought to maximise the bay views and control the climate.

“We’re always seeking to push the boundaries and deliver architectural homes that are both visually appealing and functional.

“Galleon is a perfect example of this.

“What’s more, it’s fantastic to see a small, family-owned business recognised for their hard work and impact on the industry.” 

Completed earlier this year, Galleon is set on a 462sq m lot where beauty and practicality collide.

It is a large open-plan, high-set home, boasting modern electronics, fittings and fixtures into today’s Queenslander.

“Built with individual family members in mind, Munro Designed Homes is raising the benchmark in design, quality and value,” Mr Munro said.

“I am super proud of my team for all the hard work and effort put into this build.

“It is nice to see it all come together.”
