Judges Statement: Just on its submittal and its inherent attributes, this project is a winner. However, the judges decided that its story was unique and worthy of special award consideration. You can call it Community Spirit or Service but the end result is that the story is so compelling that it merits your interest and certainly industry recognition. You may start with the LEED Platinum Standards, the simple charming design elements, site limitations, and the comfortable neighborhood feel. Given the focus on affordable and low income clients, it is all the more impressive that the project team was able to accomplish. When you add the primary goal of the client profile that it make a significant contribution toward meeting the housing needs of local Farm Labor. The overall accomplishment of this design group is truly astounding and the judges found it necessary to identify this incredible work product and accomplishment.
