Acqua Cronulla wins Kitchen of the Year and scoops two finalist nominations in the HIA Awards

10th October, 2022
The award win and finalist nominations recognise Bronxx’s continuing commitment to placemaking and craftsmanship excellence.

Bronxx’s Acqua development has won New Kitchen Up to $25,000 in HIA’s most prestigious industry awards as well as being a finalist in two other categories: Apartment Complex of The Year (Up to 20 Apartments) and Apartment of the Year.

“Bronxx is committed to building people a beautiful and enduring quality of life,” says Bronxx’s Director Ciaran Goodman. “The HIA Housing Awards highlight and reward excellence, and we’re extremely proud to be recognised by our industry peers. We completed Acqua on time and without compromise during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Receiving this award and two finalist nominations is a testament to the hard work of our skilled team. They represent some of the finest tradespeople in the industry, and they’re dedicated to designing and delivering exquisite quality homes that connect people to nature while celebrating Australia’s unique lifestyle.”

Successfully sold out before its September 2021 completion, Acqua is a boutique collection of seventeen one, two and three-bedroom penthouse-style residences, priced from $800,000 to $3.5million.

Located 100 metres from Cronulla Beach, Acqua’s idyllic sanctuary echoes its seaside surroundings with a curvaceous wave-like architectural silhouette that adds value to the streetscape. An innovative render process and the decision to hide façade pipes create Acqua’s uninterrupted flow, while deep consideration for marine-grade finishes ensures low maintenance and longevity. Construction navigated sand, drainage and fire safety challenges on a flat, small site that required a significant stormwater upgrade, including a SPEL filtration system.

“We’re also thrilled that the penthouse’s luxurious kitchen is the winner in HIA’s New Kitchen Up to $25,000 category. Our vision was to create a multi-functional entertainment, social, and cooking hub that exudes luxury, warmth, and inclusivity without compromising storage space. The expansive open-plan kitchen and entertaining space flow to the lavish living area and terrace, where soaring glass doors ensure kitchen occupants enjoy expansive vistas and fresh sea air.


“Acqua’s extraordinary penthouse is also a worthy finalist in the Apartment of the Year category,” continues Ciaran. “It spans the entire top floor and boasts 360-degree ocean views with enormous balconies to the north and south. The floorplan is meticulously designed to make you feel on top of the world, with expansive sky and sea vistas providing a sense of space and light like no other.

As well as receiving an award and multiple finalist nominations for Acqua, Bronxx is the proud recipient of a finalist nomination for another of its developments – Omnia Cronulla. Omnia is an architecturally designed collection of nine luxury coastal sanctuaries named for their all-encompassing feeling of comfort and serenity. Priced from $2.2 to $4 million, Omnia offers the finest luxury apartment living for downsizers seeking more space, light, privacy, and stunning quality finishes. The development has received a finalist nomination for its penthouse kitchen in HIA’s New Kitchen Up to $25,000 category.
