Englewood, CO, USA – WEBWIRE

Godden|Sudik Architects, a leading Denver-based architectural firm, earned 4 “Design of the Year” awards, and 6 awards overall, at the Denver Major Achievements in Marketing and Excellence (MAME) 2016 Awards, presented October 1, 2016.

Among the “Design of the Year” categories, Godden|Sudik Architects won “Attached Home of the Year,” “Detached Home of the Year,” “Custom Home of the Year,” and “Design Series of the Year.”

Attached Home of the Year - Caley Ponds 2460, Century Communities

This two-story townhome features a thoughtful floor plan and a design that maximizes both privacy and daylighting. The open concept main floor living is balanced with a private master suite upstairs, including a secluded deck. Nearness to amenities and transportation allows for an urban experience with a suburban feel.

To meet city design standards, homes feature brick with stucco accents and tile roofs and builders are more widely spaced and feature large front patios. Numerous structural options drastically vary the massing and building ascetics.

Detached Home of the Year – Marvella 5020, Century Communities

Striking details throughout, like brick window accents and a rotunda foyer, add Old World charm and beauty to this stunning new home. The oversized grand room with fireplace, dining area, and chef’s kitchen, complete with spacious island and breakfast bar, create the perfect spot for entertaining or spending time with family. The kitchen also features a gourmet pantry and a versatile pocket office. A large covered patio off the living area with outdoor fireplace extends the home outdoors and provides additional living space nearly year round. The parlor at the front of house, with large beautiful windows, can be converted to a library or guest room if desired. Upstairs features a stately curved hallway leading to the owner’s suite with rotunda entryway, tray ceiling, two-way fireplace connecting the bed and bath, and 6-piece bath. Secondary bedrooms and a generously sized loft complete the upper level.

Custom Home of the Year – Villa Moderno, Viaggio Homes

Balancing privacy and view, and modern elements with Old World design, struck a perfect balance at Villa Moderno. A glass partition allows a view of the golf course from the home’s pool while offering privacy to those poolside. Modern flavor was added to the home with carefully chosen design features, including contemporary-styled windows, while the community’s Old World feel was preserved through use of traditional materials. Inside, the mix of old and new carries throughout with rough sawn beams next to smooth stucco walls. High quality materials, like the use of only real stone, multi-color blend terra cotta roof, and streaked Italian plaster, paired with high quality workmanship, make this home a singular masterpiece. The true focus of this home is its ability to take advantage of the stunning views present from every room.

Design Series of the Year – Marvella, Century Communities

This beautiful community finds inspiration from Old World European villages. Previously designed and approved before the 2008 recession, it needed to be redesigned to better fit the constraints of the post-crash housing market. The challenge was to design a home series that met both the needs of such wider buyer profile while delivering on customers’ expectations of semicustom luxury homes. To satisfy these expectancies, more style options than normal are available per plan, and not every plan has every style, to create more exclusivity and more variety in the community, and to better to compare to the semi-custom neighborhoods around it. Four out of the seven plans were adapted from a very successful existing community. By balancing broader appeal with unique layouts and elevations, this beautiful community now posts steady sales.
The MAME Awards, sponsored by the Home Builders’ Association of Metro Denver, honor the top achievers in the new home industry. Awards are comprised of marketing, sales, interior design, architectural and builder awards. These awards are presented to those who set the standard of excellence in the Denver homebuilding industry.
