Jury comments: The jury liked the efficiencies of this adaptive re-use project. It is sensitive to the historic building, and its renovation, both economical and courageous, could not have been done without an architect. There are nice details; the front bay was made perfect. The jury appreciated the wit that was shown in blending styles, given the overall sobriety of submissions to the program. This is a good example of what this award program is hoping to achieve, bringing the traditional to the present.

Jury comments: The architect displays an economical, resourceful approach to budget. The project stood out for its sensitivity to the integration of architecture and landscape. Siting, porch, deck, and out- building are all well thought out.

 


Combined Renovation and Addition and Accessory Building Honorable Mention

Jury comments: In this combined award, the jury noted the example of restraint. The architect did an excellent job of maintaining the existing structure, with its great character, while still adapting it to the needs of its present family. It was reasonable to maintain the existing house but to expand usefulness by adding the three car barn with additional living space. The garage itself is rendered in a wonderfully complementary way.
