KATHRYN LAIR HISTORICAL, RESTORATION/PRESERVATION FIRST PLACE: JOANIE WYLL & ASSOCIATES, INC., LEAD DESIGNER JOANIE WYLL; ARCHITECT MARK DOMITEAUX OUTDOOR ENTERTAINING SPACE FIRST PLACE: KIRSTEN KELLI, LEAD DESIGNERS KIRSTEN FITZGIBBONS AND KELLI FORD PROJECT: Howard Meyer Mid-Century Modern Restoration DESIGN CONCEPT: Built by the well-known mid-century modern architect Howard Meyer, this home has remained untouched or remodeled, down to the metal kitchen cabinets. When designing this remodel, it was important to keep the integrity of the era while giving the home a much-needed facelift. Honey-toned wood paneling was salvaged and refinished to create a warm backdrop for contemporary art. Neutral creams, grays and taupe fabrics and low-profile furniture stay true to the mid-century style and keep the space bright. Yellow accents are dispersed throughout this open-floor-plan living space, from the artwork and the custom rug to the flowers and the throw. Floor-to-ceiling windows line the front and back of the home, allowing natural light to flood the rooms, making artificial lighting unnecessary. JUDGES' REMARK: "Beautifully designed from soup to nuts!" — Brian McCarthy RUNNER-UP: Michelle Meredith & Associates, lead designers Michelle Meredith and Brittany Taylor, for Le Meridien Stoneleigh Public Rooms PROJECT: The Great Room Outdoors DESIGN CONCEPT: This impressive outdoor space features multiple areas that the designers turned into functional spaces ideal for Southern entertaining. The primary area has enough seating for 16 guests — a mix of outdoor sofas, chairs and ottomans by Michael Taylor, upholstered with a Sunbrella khaki-and- white cabana stripe fabric. An intimate dining area under trelliswork brims with vibrant textiles, patterns, pillows and chairs featuring quatrefoil backs upholstered in contrasting fabrics. An additional lounge area under a covered porch provides a comfortable place to relax with a glass of iced tea. Sculptures and modern art by Barry Flanagan and Maillol were incorporated into the landscape and pool design to add depth and intrigue. JUDGES' REMARKS: "Absolutely stunning! I love the Moroccan details and the wide range of colors used in this outdoor space." — Martyn Lawrence Bullard "Beautiful — classical with an updated feel and seamless integration between the house, terraces and landscape." — Timothy Whealon "Worldly eclectic mix on a beautiful property … Great style and fabulous Maillol." — Robert Couturier RUNNER-UP: Mesa Design Group, landscape designer Mary Ellen Cowan with architect Jessica Stewart Lendvay, for Shadywood Residence LAURA WILSON COMMERCIAL INTERIOR DESIGN, OFFICE OR PUBLIC SPACE FIRST PLACE: EMILY SUMMERS DESIGN ASSOCIATES, LEAD DESIGNER EMILY SUMMERS, PROJECT DESIGNER NEAL FRISKE, SENIOR DESIGNER KRISTEN FEGALE; ARCHITECT GOOD FULTON & FARRELL PROJECT: Offices at Highland Park Village DESIGN CONCEPT: Highland Park Village is an outdoor shopping center built in 1931 as the community center of a residential development. Built in Spanish Colonial style, it was the first shopping center in America designed to allow automobiles to drive up and park directly in front of shops. Over the decades, the center has become a cherished and enduring piece of architecture. The Highland Park Village owners engaged the firm to design the interiors for 20,000 square feet of various former retail spaces that were being combined into one large unified space for the owners to handle their diverse professional and community relations. The designers and architects carefully combined the architecturally diverse spaces into one cohesive whole, working with the client to meet their programming needs, which ranged from personal offices to conference rooms, banquet areas and a large gathering area flexible enough for even fashion shows. Limestone, dark fumed oak floors, warm plaster walls and custom hand-knotted Moroccan rugs throughout tie the interiors to the historic Spanish Colonial style of the original buildings. Custom-designed modern lighting references traditional lantern styles, and rich textures such as rope, woven leathers and mica bring refined outdoor textures to the interiors. The design team put together a collection of vintage and current fashion photography, as well as a project-specific commissioned collection by Laura Wilson, which was photographed on the property. JUDGES' REMARKS: "Exceptional in every aspect — the textures, mix of old and new with clean-lined architecture, vintage pieces and interesting art." — Timothy Whealon "Love the elegance of these spaces. The color choice of white is well incorporated." — Martyn Lawrence Bullard "Stylish, sophisticated, clean and carefully crafted interiors. Well done." — Brian McCarthy RUNNER-UP: Staffelbach, lead architects Andre Staffelbach and Jo Heinz, project manager Mark Reed and senior project designer Art Bloodworth, for Carlson Capital JANUARY | PAGE 23 | 2016
