The Riviera by Metricon has been crowned as the Display Home of The Year in the 2021 HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards, confirming its status as officially the best display home in Australia. Let’s take a look at why!
The Riviera design has now won an incredible nine awards nationally, with its opulence, functionality, and carefully considered detail proving to deliver the ultimate lifestyle home. It has really upped the ante for volume builders and impressed judges across the country.
“The Riviera is really a breakthrough home, setting new standards for volume building design,” says Adrian Popple, the design director of Metricon. “For me to sit down and get creative and design something completely different was exciting. To see it hit the ground and know that families all around Australia are loving it, that’s what makes it all worthwhile.”
The Riviera is a great example of well-designed, luxurious living that is smartly planned to make the most of an indoor/outdoor lifestyle.
With a ground floor dedicated to entertainment and lifestyle, the expansive open plan kitchen, which includes a butler’s pantry and a wet bar that overlooks the large dining room, is situated at the heart of the home. Beyond the dining room is the extra-large alfresco entertaining space, that is separated by doors that can be completely opened to create a seamless integration between the indoors and the outdoors.
On the first floor there is an extravagant master suite with a private balcony, ensuite and large walk-in-robe; a media room; and three other bedrooms all with their own ensuite and walk-in robes.
This smart design balances an abundance of space and options for the family to entertain large groups, along with allowing spaces for family members to retreat and for private downtime.
