The interior of a Wanaka house, which resulted in Breen Construction Company scoring the Supreme Award for Southern Registered Master Builders 2015 House of the Year.

A Wanaka new build and a Queenstown renovation have been revealed as this year's top southern homes, winning supreme awards in the Southern Registered Master Builders 2015 House of the Year competition.

The Breen Construction Company from Wanaka took out four regional awards with the Wanaka build, including a gold award and category win for the Westpac New Home over $2 million award, as well as the Southern Registered Master Builders Supreme Award for the 2015 House of the Year.

The company also won the Heart of the Home Kitchen Award.

A J Saville Builder from Queenstown was awarded Southern Registered Master Builders 2015 Renovation of the Year Supreme Award for the Queenstown reno, as well as a gold award and overall category win for the SafetyMate renovation award over $500,000.

The company also took out a gold award in the Carters New Home $1m to $2m category for another property.

The results were revealed at a gala dinner on Saturday at the Ascot Park Hotel in Invercargill.

The Breen Construction Company's winning Wanaka build impressed judges, who called the home a "complex structure executed to a very high standard."

Judges described the house as having a restrained elegance with design surprises and comfortable ambience.

A J Saville Builder retained Queenstown character in his renovation, with impressive stonework and views of Coronet Peak and the Remarkables, judges said.

Of the 40 category award winners announced, two were from Invercargill.
