The Piedmont Planning Commission is scheduled to select winners of this year's Design Awards at its meeting on Feb. 11, according the meeting agenda issued Monday.
Each year the commission honors design projects in several categories, such as Best Renovation, Best Second Story Addition and Best New House on a Challenging Site.
Last year's winners were:
- New House on a Challenging Site, 155 Maxwelton Road (excellent design and attractive amenities on a difficult site)
- New House in the Craftsman Revival Style, 198 Maxwelton Road (a beautifully done rebuild with attention to architectural detail)
- Second Story Addition, 128 Arbor Drive (a very well-integrated design)
- Seamless Addition, 1900 Oakland Ave. (seamless construction with respect to historical character)
- Renovation, 10 Lorita Ave. (a well-done complete remodel)
The awards recognize "superior design projects whose construction quality and design elements exemplify the City’s Design Review Guidelines and enhance the aesthetics of the community," according to the commission meeting minutes' summary of comments by then commission Chairman Michael Henn at last year's Design Awards presentation on March 12.
The commission's review and selection of this year's awardees will take place during a special session dinner break, from 6:30-7 p.m. in the City Hall Conference Room, during the regular commission meeting on Feb. 11. The regular meeting begins at 5 p.m. in Council Chambers.
