2013 Residential ASID Design Excellence Award Winners

BEST IN SHOW—RESIDENTIAL & TOTAL REMODEL
Anita Lang, Allied ASID, IMI Design Studio

With a request from her clients to “glam up” their vanilla shell of a home, the great room fireplace was changed, architectural interest was added with wood paneling and molding, and custom furniture was designed—all on a very conservative budget. Due to the limited size of rooms, clever space-planning was required. For example, the long, narrow great room was given a sculptural feel with a curvaceous sectional placed on the diagonal and coupled with a facing banco to maximize seating. Furniture in the master suite also was angled to amplify the view and the sense of space.

RESIDENCE UNDER 3,500 SF
Winner - Anita Lang, Allied ASID
IMI Design Studio


Creating a look of understated, casual elegance for homeowners who enjoy entertaining was the goal of this project. With that in mind, the designer added wood wall paneling, a built-in banco, and a walk-up wine bar, and also revamped lighting to create mood. Taking cues from the curved architecture, a custom sectional with a wood console creates an anchor for the great room as well as visual interest from the foyer. The custom coffee table features a cantilevered fossilized limestone slab. And the color palette of warm butterscotch and stone-gray neutrals is punctuated by colorful art and accessories.

RESIDENCE 3,500-6,000 SF
Winner - Katherine Lockett Pullen, Allied ASID & Michele Logan, ASID, Studio V Interior Design

This classic yet modern urban residence was designed to reflect the glamorous and elegant lifestyle of its high-profile clients, while maintaining a high level of comfort. The fresh color palette used for interiors was set off with charcoal-gray wood floors and classic architectural moldings. Furnishings are upholstered in sumptuous fabrics, and simple high-gloss cabinetry is coupled with stylish crystal chandeliers and sconces. The overall design aesthetic reinforces a fusion of enduring classical lines and bold modern elements.

RESIDENCE OVER 6,000 SF
Winner - Angelica Henry, ASID, Angelica Henry Design

This home celebrates the clients’ penchant for non-traditional design elements, bold color and pattern, and a hands-on approach. The desired design style—that of a “successful Telluride miner”—was achieved through a mix of rustic and refined materials, a rich color palette, and hand-wrought touches used to establish a sense of relaxed comfort. Challenges included highlighting carefully budgeted materials that are unique in nature or application, and creating warmth to balance the hard surfaces. Custom touches range from saw-cut concrete floor patterns, an art wall to conceal kitchen cabinetry and appliances, and an exposed-flue fireplace, to a custom logo, which was repeated in a custom fabric and other details.

KITCHEN NEW OR REMODELED
Winner - Anita Lang, Allied ASID, IMI Design Studio

The design goals for this kitchen and bar were to update the bland typicality of the space, create functionality for a serious cook, and do it all within a stringent budget. The idea was to play to the architectural principal of massing in the kitchen’s layout by juxtaposing such materials as white lacquer, ribboned sapele wood and grey limestone. In response to other needs, a dining counter was incorporated into the center island, a full-service bar was added, and tracts of directional low-voltage lights were combined with LED
lighting.

BATHROOM—NEW OR REMODELED
Winner - Anita Lang, Allied ASID, IMI Design Studio

A powder room should be a treat for guests and also needs to be in keeping with the architectural design of the residence. With this in mind, the designer underscored the home’s established Modern Mountain architectural style by creating a side-mounted faucet that waterfalls into a gray limestone trough. Walls range from linear tiles laid in a mosaic pattern to grasscloth interrupted with horizontal steel reveals. Lighting is a combination of recessed and low-voltage directional cable lights. Completing the composition is a slim wood-trimmed floor-to-ceiling mirror.

OUTDOOR LIVING SPACE
Winner - Anita Lang, Allied ASID, IMI Design Studio

To create the luxuriously appointed lakeside outdoor living room that her clients wanted, the designer first needed to add architectural interest and an updated Modern aesthetic to the exterior of their home. In addition to posts reclad in hot-rolled steel, horizontal copper bands that incorporate lighting, and a new simplified railing, a new entry door and front stair element were introduced. Needs for the living area included generous seating, a repositioned barbecue, and protection from the sometimes chilly clime. A dining nook with a banco was created on one side of the second-level patio; a custom fire pit anchors the living area, providing both warmth and ambience.

EMERGING PROFESSIONAL
Winner - Lindsay Kadlick, Allied ASID; Mara Peterson, Allied ASID, Est Est, Inc.

In response to their clients’ desire for a warm and inviting Spanish hacienda with a Contemporary twist, the designers chose a light palette to create a fresh look. Neutral materials selected include natural French oak hardwood flooring, wood beams, and white paint throughout. Traditional Spanish influences were brought in through architectural details, such as wood door headers, hand-forged iron straps, iron grillwork, and a variety of “hacienda-style” fireplaces. Furnishings are an eclectic blend of Contemporary and Spanish styling, accented with pops of color.

PRODUCT DESIGN: FURNITURE
Winner - Anita Lang, Allied ASID, IMI Design Studio


In answer to her clients’ desire for a centerpiece fire feature that both serves and warms guests, the designer’s goal was to combine function with a design appropriate for Modern Mountain architecture. The 90-degree angles of copper and steel mirror each other, allowing the negative space to sculpt the linear form. The center plane of limestone and river rock houses a sliver of flame protected by glass blades. The metal, stone and glass nod to the materials used structurally in the home. And the table-like steel surfaces offer an easy-maintenance surface on which to set a beverage while enjoying the warmth of the flame.

PRODUCT DESIGN—FIXTURE
Winner - Angelica Henry, ASID, Angelica Henry Design

To create an architectural feature with enough visual weight to balance the large scale of the room and its trusses, the designer came up with an exposed-flue fireplace that incorporates industrial and rustic materials—including corten steel, rebar rods and angle iron—to tie in with the design of the home. In addition to partially concealing the flue while revealing the mechanics of the fireplace, the intricate pattern of rebar rods also lends shadow, texture and depth. The immense weight of the rods required the entire team to engineer support for the massive cantilevered feature.

PRODUCT DESIGN: REUSE/REPURPOSED DESIGN
Winner - Angelica Henry, ASID, Angelica Henry Design

The objective for this design was to create non-traditional artwork to serve as a striking focal point for a master bath. A search of shops and websites led to Crate & Barrel’s Suki bowls—which have a matte black exterior paired with a gleaming gold interior finish—and their $20 price tag was well within
the restrained budget. Having a woodworker make a simple oak frame took the bowls from
interesting centerpiece to
high-end art.
