Jury comments: The exterior is nicely proportioned and detailed. The house, which is not on a large property, blends with the neighborhood. It brings together traditional design and a compact efficient layout. The sustainable design elements are admirable. The layout of the interior is very good for modern living.

Jury comments: The design is appealing. With simple details and clear lines on the exterior spaces, it is classic and well proportioned. There is a nice approach to the front door. The use of wood makes the interior warmer. This is a new house but has the spirit of traditional, New England saltbox.

Jury comments: There is a good use of existing volumes, recladding them with nice details. There is a pretty approach to the front. The building is charming. The jury applauds the use of most of the existing structure. It keeps the volumes, but reimages what could be done on the outside while cleaning up the interior. It took ingenuity to carry out this project, and vision carried it through.

Jury comments: The jury liked the fact that one cannot tell where old and new come together. It is an Italianate Revival style success. The exterior works; the design was bold in demolition. The interiors are nicely detailed and totally in keeping with the Italianate style.

Jury comments: This is a nice make-over, using the same volumes of the original building. It is good design on a modest budget. The use of materials on the outside lightened the building up. This is an abstracted shingle style house on a small scale, bright, airy, with an open interior. The jury loved the kitchen.
