Congrats to the Valley’s own PHX Architecture as the firm took home two Gold Nuggets and three Merit Awards at the 56th Annual Gold Nugget Award Ceremony. This is no small feat as The Gold Nugget is the top architectural design award in the country.
Take a look at the award-winning design wonders:
Azure Residences, Paradise Valley
Gold Nugget Award: Residential Detached Collection of the Year
The Azure Residences are a culmination of sixty-six homes designed with a true balance of modern and traditional architecture. A stunning collaboration of architecture and landscaping with a balance of form and function provides a spectacular setting in each residence. Each space was brought to life with the vision of award-winning teams of PHX Architecture, Greey | Pickett, and developer Shea Homes.
Azure Residence 1 (pictured), Paradise Valley
Gold Nugget Award: Best Single Family Detached Home —3,500 to 4,500 Sq. Ft.
Merit Award: Best Indoor/Outdoor Lifestyle For a Home
This Azure Residence demonstrates the beautiful application of a controlled palette of materials that creates a signature appearance from both the street and internal vistas. Each color palette is modified to the residence type allowing the elevations to boast a soft contemporary and traditional style.
The unique design of the entryway and landscaping of the residence are the features that create an indoor/outdoor luxury lifestyle. This is displayed in the floor to ceiling windows at the back of the house, presenting a view of sprawling backyard and the simultaneous enjoyment of the indoor and outdoor features of the home. The pool assumes the entirety of the backyard space, creating a beautiful water installation. Following the bend of the pool around the side of the house, the indoor/outdoor experience continues with a grand living space opening to the outdoor dining area.
Azure Residence 3, Paradise Valley
Merit Awards: Best Single Family Detached Home — over 4,500 Sq. Ft. and Best Indoor/Outdoor Lifestyle For a Home
A modern masterpiece, Residence 3 invites you in with a front entrance made for natural light to fill the front living space. Each living space is tailored to comfortably host a large group inside while remaining connected to the natural world as light beams through the windows. The entertainment options are endless with the stunning outdoor design. The open-ended arrangement surrounding the pool allows for outdoor dining, lounging around the fire and enjoying a beverage at the outdoor bar. The interior features softer wood tones, complementing the inviting outdoor landscape.
