Single Family Residence

Honor Awards

Hemlock Hill Residence, New Canaan, CT

Photographer: Durston Saylor

Hemlock Hill Residence, New Canaan, CT
Joeb Moore + Partners LLC, Greenwich, CT

Jury comments:
This project is an amazingly reconceived make-over: a very creative transformation invests formal thinking in it. Material decisions help to establish contrast and depth; there is an integrated sense of materiality, both inside and out. lt left the jury “gob-smacked!”

Bay House, Southhampton, NY

Photographer: Archphoto – Paul Rivera

Bay House, Southhampton, NY
Roger Ferris + Partners, Westport, CT

Jury comments:
Simple and restrained, the house is a very clear plan type. There is a very good connection between the building pavilion and the pool. The jury liked the direct view of the ocean when one is entering the house. It is well done with clarity and a high level of craft.

 


Merit Awards

Stonington Residence, Stonington, CT

Photographer: David Sundberg / Esto

 

Stonington Residence, Stonington, CT
Joeb Moore + Partners LLC, Greenwich, CT

Jury comments:
This is a very good, solid project with one effective gesture. Part preservation, part intervention, it creates a new, refreshed composition in a clean, legible, bold way.

 

Cube House VI, Guilford, CT

Photographer: Curt Clayton

 

Cube House VI, Guilford, CT
Wilfred J. O. Armster, Architect AIA, Guilford, CT

Jury comments:
In this tight building on a tight budget that has grand ambitions there is effective use of space. This is not only a stacking of volumes, but also a composition of space and planes. The jury appreciates the fact that the building stays with its cabin precedents and its modesty.

 

House on Sunset Ridge, Norfolk, CT

Photographer: Paul Warchol

House on Sunset Ridge, Norfolk, CT
Resolution: 4 Architecture, New York, NY

Jury comments:
This residential project demonstrated the fact that pre-fabrication can result in great architecture. This residence sits very comfortably on its site.
