National Award

Jonathan Kuhn Architect (JKA)                      
Washington, D.C.

A modern transformation including a rear, vertical addition and a butterfly roof, Johnathan Kuhn Architects expanded the house to include five beds and four-and-a-half baths while helping to achieve a more prominent visual position in the community.

The subtle play of dark window frames, beams, light fixtures and handles create whimsical interest within neutral-toned rooms. Light allows further movement in the bathrooms by way of glass floor-to-ceiling walls. Beautiful wood floors throughout the living spaces ground the home, and combined with the multiple vistas, keep the home in conversation with the natural world.


Regional Award

MA Peterson Designbuild Inc.                       
Edina, Minn.

Previously, this classic 1930s home was outdated, featured small and congested rooms and lacked adequate space and functionality. It was tastefully updated from top to bottom and added on to create more functional, modernized and light-filled living areas. The new addition features a dynamic kitchen area and creates a more open and connected main level, and a sport court beneath the kitchen adds a fun space for kids to enjoy. Stunning interior updates, new exterior details and a new garage modernize this home for today’s needs and bring fresh style, functionality and curb appeal to this charming home.


Regional Award

Sun Design Remodeling Specialists, Inc.       
Burke, Va.

The clients were looking for a better indoor/outdoor connection that could be used year-round. They also own a yoga studio and now that their classes have gone
virtual, they wanted a place to video their classes with an outdoor backdrop.

As a result, this mid-century modern conservatory has been added. During the day, the table is easily pushed to the side to video their virtual yoga class when desired. In the evening, the cozy space transforms into an extension of the indoors to warm by the fire, whether eating dinner or reading a book under the stars.


Regional Award

Tenhulzen Residential LLC                             
Woodinville, Wash.

Divided into two separate spaces, the original smaller-than-effective bonus room over the garage was accessible from the top of the back stairwell. Exercise equipment, entertainment closet, bean bag chair and more crammed into this tiny, awkward space.

The expanded bonus room was completed in time for the family to set it up with designated areas for card play, lounging, gaming and watching movies during COVID-19. A barn door helps to quiet the activity to the rest of the house.
