2017 GOLD NUGGET AWARD WINNER
TRI POINTE HOMES SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA CAPTURES GRAND AWARD AT 2017 GOLD NUGGET AWARDS
IRVINE, CA — (July 13, 2017)
TRI Pointe Homes Southern California is proud to announce that its Carlisle Residence 4 at Parasol Park, located in Irvine, Calif., has been recognized as a Grand Award winner for the 2017 Gold Nugget Awards in the category of Best Detached Single Family Home – 2,000-2,499 square feet. The award acknowledges the home plan for its application of Art Deco design in modern production housing while addressing the need for practical design on a small site.
The award specifically recognizes the thoughtful execution of the small-lot home, which judges praised for using both the “interior plan layout and exterior detailing to skillfully achieve the scale and massing necessary”. Judges also highlighted the way a third-level bonus room and covered deck capture the essence of new trends that involve going vertical in order to maximize outdoor living.
“We are honored to receive this award for designs we’ve dedicated a lot of time and effort to,” said Tom Grable, Division President, TRI Pointe Homes Southern California. “Today, modern doesn’t just mean mid-century, and it also isn’t strictly futuristic. Our design team drew a lot of inspiration from comforting elements of traditional design while adding a contemporary Art Deco spin, and this award is testament to the thoughtfulness the team put into Carlisle.”
The winning design behind the residences at Carlisle was a collaborative effort from an all-star team that included interior design by CDC Designs, architecture by Angeleno Associates, planning by Hunsaker, and development by FivePoint Communities. The TRI Pointe Homes team embraced the opportunity to depart from a conventional approach, taking design to the next level by incorporating comforting elements of traditional design with Art Deco principles to create a fresh, modern home. Such designs come with major challenges, but judges commended the Residence 4 design team for utilizing a carefully orchestrated floor plan to offer expansive bedrooms and other living spaces that read larger than those found in other houses of its size without sacrificing the eye-catching design elements from its Art Deco features.
Carlisle is located within Parasol Park, an amenity-rich community in the Great Park Neighborhoods. Featuring a community greenhouse, resort style pools, and walkable/bikeable trails throughout, Carlisle consists of a collection of two- and three-story single-family detached homes. Inspired by the clean lines of Classic Modern and Streamline Moderne and the distinctive Art Deco aesthetic, the homes are bathed with natural light from oversized windows. An optional third floor is an open and radiant retreat, with options for an expansive rooftop deck and outdoor grill and bar for versatility in outdoor lounging and entertainment.
Now in its 54th year, the Gold Nugget Awards is the largest and most prestigious competition of its kind in the nation. It honors design and planning achievements in community and home design, green-built housing, site planning, commercial, retail, mixed-use development, and specialty housing categories. Winners this year were chosen from 630 entries from around the world.
