Judges for the 2020 Gold Nugget Awards honored Drewett Works, a Scottsdale-based architectural firm, with a trio of Grand Awards in its annual competition that honors architectural design and planning excellence. Entries are submitted from throughout the United States and internationally. This year, winners were selected from more than 600 entries.
Drewett Works’ Grand Awards were Seven Desert Mountain, honored for Best Recreational Use Facility/Amenity; Tonal Harmony honored for Best Interior Design of a One of a Kind or Custom Home. An Award of Merit went to The Crusader, honored in the Best Custom Home over 8,000 Square Foot category.
Seven Desert Mountain is an 8,900-square-foot community clubhouse with free-flowing indoor-outdoor experiences created by extensive overhangs, walls of pocketing glass and natural materials which flow from the indoors out. Tonal Harmony is a Paradise Valley modern retreat single-family home. The Crusader, a house located at The Estancia Club in Scottsdale, takes inspiration from an F8 Crusader plane, wings folded, on a carrier deck, the plane flown by the architect’s father while serving in the Marine Corps.
In its 57th year, GNA is the largest competition of its kind in the nation.
