Celebrating Home of the Year 2022


Last week, we celebrated the 27th Home of the Year awards at an exclusive event at the Designer Rugs showroom in Grey Lynn, Auckland.

The Home of the Year winners, finalists and their guests celebrated in style, with canapés created on site by Private Chef Arno Jullien, beverages provided by Citizen, New Zealand’s 2021 winemaker of the Year, Jules Taylor Wine, and Antipodes water.  

“We are incredibly proud to be able to celebrate New Zealand’s best residential architecture – this year’s winners representing a rich and diverse group of projects that deliver excellence, joy, and innovation,” HOME editor in chief Clare Chapman says.

“These are homes that describe what it means to live in New Zealand in 2022, and what is possible when design dares to be bold and intrepid.”

Congratulations to the 2022 Home of the Year winners and finalists, and a special thanks to our partners for 2022 – Dulux, Dryden, BMW, James Hardie, Studio Italia, and Peter Fell!
