RESIDENTIAL ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN Under 3,500 Square Feet FIRM Collaborative Designworks LEAD DESIGNER James M. Evans ADDITIONAL RECOGNITION Interior design, Andra White Design JUDGES' REMARKS "I love almost everything about this house — it's a water bird about to take flight, from the way it hovers above the lake to the flared-wing roof. It is a house light on the landscape, figuratively and literally. Its effortless consideration of the environment proves that a building can be beautiful while respecting natural resources. Pushing the rooms out to the perimeter affords every room a spectacular view, while making efficient use of service space. The limited color palette is appropriate to its surroundings. The play of the curved interior walls against the curtain wall is wonderful. I love the porch as dock. I could keep going. This house hits it out of the parkland." — Thomas Kligerman "Simply put, stunning! A beautiful collaboration of man and nature. Thoughtfully sited, the openable window walls allow the house to breathe, creating an effortless movement inside and out. The refined detailing and use of materials speak to a place for reflection and solitude." — Eric J. Smith HONORABLE MENTION Brett Zamore and Tzu-Yu Chen, Brett Zamore Design JAMES M.
