MEET THE JUDGES Six remodelers took the time out of their schedules to spend two days in Chicago sorting through more than 300 binders to narrow down and select the winners you see on these pages. Thank you to the six judges in this year's Master Design Awards program. From left to right: Patty McDaniel, Boardwalk Builders Inc., Rehoboth Beach, Del.; Michael Menn, AIA, CGR, CAPS, Michael Menn Ltd., Northbrook, Ill.; Paul Winans, CR, Winans Consulting, Ashland, Ore.; Anthony Wilder, Anthony Wilder Design/Build Inc., Cabin John, Md.; Geno Benvenuti, Benvenuti & Stein, Winnetka, Ill.; and Michael O'Brien, Change Design Inc., Wilmette, Ill. can be the life and blood of a structure when used as a refective element of the architecture. Another stand-out was a detached structure with understated lines and materials that cre- ated warmth and texture. Rough-sawn wood, steel cable rails and stairs, and an abundant use of glass gave a transparency to this large structure. I loved the juxtaposition of the con- temporary glass and steel with the coarse-sawn woods. It felt like a sanctuary." All of the judges agreed that organized, efcient presentation packets and, above all, professional photography, made an entry truly shine. "Te winners were clearly winners and set the bar high for everyone in our industry," Benvenuti says. Read on to see what peer-to- peer judging has chosen as the best projects. | QualifiedRemodeler.com QR September 2015 23
