“To win an award in this highly competitive category is quite an achievement,” says Ken Kanline, Director of the Awards.
J. Barwick Construction & Fryday and Doyne Architecture entered a Charlotte residence in the Chrysalis award category for whole house remodel $300,000-$700,000 range. This is a national award, and they took home the honor for 2016.
Continuing to set new standards of professionalism, 84 remodeling companies from across the United States were named winners at the 2016 Chrysalis Awards for Remodeling Excellence. The entries were judged on overall design, the creative use of space and materials, and the degree to which the project enhanced the original structure.
This project took an aged house and reinvigorated and expanded it to meet the needs of a young professional couple. The design maintained the architectural scale of the street while expanding the house to dramatically enhancing its livability. The demolition of the old attic allowed the addition of the private family sleeping quarters with a new master suite plus two new bedrooms. This allowed dedicating the main level to the more public living spaces as well as a flexible guest room, office space, bathrooms and another bedroom.
“This was the first year they have entered the awards, and to take home top honors on the first attempt is impressive,” says Ken Kanline, Director of the Awards.
The Chrysalis Awards program, begun in 1994, recognizes the nation’s best work in fifteen general categories of residential and commercial remodeling. The Chrysalis Awards are open to every professional remodeler and design professional in the United States.
