2014 Gold Nugget Award Winners!

St. Joseph's Family Apartments

2014 Gold Nugget Grand Award Winner for Best Affordable Housing Project - 30-60 du/acre

Judges Statement: This is a very good design that successfully complements and completes the first phase of this development without overshadowing the beautiful historic structures. The new construction is very straightforward, a dignified addition that steps town toward the existing buildings, framing the historic renovation. The new façade integrates with the overall development yet stands on its own architecturally. There are very nice interiors in the historic building that retain the details and historic fabric of the construction. The new units are crisp and light-filled, with great views. The result is a unique multi-generational, mixed-use campus.
