Hanley Wood, the premier information, media, event, and strategic marketing services company serving the residential, commercial design, and construction industries, is pleased to announce the winners of its 2017 Remodeling Design Awards. The Remodeling Design Awards recognize excellence in design and construction of residential and light commercial remodeling and renovation projects.

Each year, REMODELING honors the industry’s best and brightest with its prestigious Remodeling Design Awards competition. Of the 185 entries, the judges chose just 13 projects: one Project of the Year, six grand awards and six merit prizes. All show top-notch creativity and craftsmanship that were deserving of recognition.

Judges lauded the clean lines in many of the projects submitted for the 2017 Remodeling Design Awards. They agreed the trend toward contemporary and modern design is getting stronger and more pervasive. During their deliberations, judges discussed not only the overall look and feel of a space but also the smallest design choices, such as hardware. “What set this year’s winners apart were those meticulous details and the level of difficulty in executing the design,” said Craig Webb, editor-in-chief of REMODELING.

This year’s Project of the Year was Valley Club, a 5,950-square-foot single-family home in Southern California. Entered in the Historic Restoration category, the home was designed by architect Diego Monchamp, Brown Design Group, Los Angeles; and remodeled by Ryan Prahm, DD Ford Construction, Santa Barbara, CA. It was originally destined to be transformed into a contemporary steel-and concrete home, but after investigating the home’s history, the team chose to preserve it. The home now features a large kitchen with two separate islands; a large volume of windows which enables the owner’s wish of a seamless indoor-outdoor living space; and outdoor living features including a pool, several decks and a table and bench set constructed from pine trees torn down on the lot.
