1672 Square Foot Home Wins National Design Award
I am amazed that this year's winner of the 2012 Gold Award for Best Architectural Design for a Single Family Detached Home Under 2,500 Square Feet was The Siena at Laguna Altura in Irvine, California built by Irvine Pacific.
I am not surprised by the builder; Irvine Pacific is terrific, nor the house- it is gorgeous. I am just amazed that a home close to 900 square feet below the maximum requirement had enough to offer to win!
As a former builder and home designer, I never would have thought such an entry would have a chance. So what doesn't this house have that a typical 2500 square foot home has?:
- Living Room,
- Fourth Bedroom
- Eat-in Kitchen
- Master Sitting Area
- No Separate Shower in Master Bedroom
What does this tell us about the future of housing?
- Is less more?
- Do most families eat most meal out?
- Are luxurious master bedrooms wasteful?
- Are living rooms antiquated?
- Are people tired of cleaning more than they need to in bathrooms?
