DW-designed project Outside In captured a Silver Award at the 2018 Nationals for Best Architectural Design of a One of Kind Home – Custom or Spec.
NAHB’s National Sales and Marketing Council (NSMC) has announced Silver Award Winners for The Nationals new home sales and marketing awards for home builders, developers, associates, and consultants. Drewett Works received Silver Award honors for Best Architectural Design of a One of a Kind Home – Custom or Spec for the Outside In project.
Positioned near the base of iconic Camelback Mountain, “Outside In” is a modernist home celebrating the love of outdoor living Arizonans crave. The design inspiration was honoring early territorial architecture while applying modernist design principles. Dressed with undulating negra cantera stone, the massing elements of “Outside In” bring an artistic stature to the project’s design hierarchy. This home boasts a first (never seen before feature) — a re-entrant pocketing door which unveils virtually the entire home’s living space to the exterior pool and view terrace. A timeless chocolate and white palette makes this home both elegant and refined. Oriented south, the spectacular interior natural light illuminates what promises to become another timeless piece of architecture for the Paradise Valley landscape.
The project team for Outside In included developer/builder Bedbrock Developers, Drewett Works – architecture, Ownby Design – interior design. Werner Segarra was the project photographer.
The Nationals salutes and honors the best in the building industry for their determination, integrity, creativity, and endurance.
