GOLD Detached Structure Daniel Contelmo Architects, Poughkeepsie, N.Y., dtcarchitects.com Project name: Carriage House Location: Dutchess County, N.Y. Square footage: 5,500 Cost: $1.4 million This detached structure sits on 30 acres and houses the homeowner's 15-car collection while doubling as a gathering space. The building was required to be located behind the existing home and feel as though it could've been there for 100 years. The carriage- house structure fit on a site near a rock knoll, cliff and wet area. An existing stone wall was incorpo- rated into new walls that were used to delineate yard and courts, and define uses around the carriage house. The timber frame structure has columns wide enough apart that two cars can be parked between them with their doors open. There is a center display aisle for display and driving cars in and out and an overhead catwalk for viewing the cars from above. A main gable roof simplifies and defines the structure while a reverse gable facing the house creates character and interest while dividing the long roof behind it. Radiant heat in the brick floor prevents moisture from getting to the cars, and cars can be backed out of sliding mahogany doors to run on a hollow paver surface. A brick entrance courtyard incorporated into the existing stone walls and trees is used for gatherings and display of one of the vehicles. SILVER: C&R Remodeling, Salem, Ore., remodelsalem.com BEST IN SHOW more than $ 2 5 0,000 Mannarino Designs Inc., Holmdel, N.J., mannarinodesigns.com Project name: Wine Room Location: Lincoln Park, N.J. Square footage: 186 Cost: $126,992 This main-floor wine room stores the client's wine collection and serves as an extension of the entertaining areas of the home. The vaulted ceil- ing reached 16 ft. at its highest point and had the potential to create an elevator-like feeling. The remodel covered the surface with chipped granite to match the textures and design, while withstanding the temperature and high humidity of the refrigerated space. Four glass light panels suspended from the ceiling create a subtle break in the height. Other materials used to create the space include natural walnut cabinetry, satin nickel wine racks, a custom rolling ladder, titanium and copper polished porcelain, and a custom table with a rift cut oak top and hand-forged, nickel-plated legs.
