Whole House More Than $ 700,000 SILVER Daniel Contelmo Architects, Poughkeepsie, N.Y., dtcarchitects.com BRONZE Davitt Design Build, North Kingston, R.I., davittdesignbuild.com U nique pieces of property require unique solutions. Such is the case with a wedge shaped lot on a sought-after lake in South Carolina. Tis "grandfathered" structure is close to the water with views on three sides. Chapman Design Group Inc. of Anderson, S.C., worked with the client to create a much larger main house while ensuring the viability of the at- tached guest suite. Te solution was to demolish the entire existing main house and to keep the existing 1,100-sq.-ft. guest quarters. From there they would bulld a new 2,800-sq.-ft. main house that is connected to the guest suite. Te 2015 Master Design Award judges deemed this the best in its Whole House category, but also the best of all projects over $300,000 in price for many reasons. First, it met all of its primary goals. Tey were able to achieve the goal of cre- ating lake views from every room in the home. Second, they were able to incorporate a design theme that played out in many ways throughout the structure. Finally, they were truly able to make the most of the unique property, in- cluding a 20- by 20-ft. octagon deck that reaches out farther toward the water. Te judges were particularly impressed that each of the home's three large gables were entirely occupied by diamond-shaped, six piece windows. Tat diamond theme was repeated in the light on the front door of the home. | GOLD & BEST IN SHOW OVER $ 300,000 CHAPMAN DESIGN GROUP INC., ANDERSON, S.C.
