25 Year Award –Tyson Temple – Odle McGuire Shook
"This project exhibits exceptional art deco details. It's very iconic. The architect uses form and pared-down modern details to create a memorable monument for Versailles -- a beautiful building lovingly cared for. One juror said that he would screech to stop if he were driving past the Tyson Temple, in Versailles."
Honor Award – Cool Springs Horse Barn – New Construction – Hafer Associates
"The barn is comfortably fitted on its hill at the culmination of a beautiful approach road. For such a large building, it is very graceful. The traditional form is simple and well executed and it's beautifully detailed inside and out."
Honor Award - Nature Conservancy – New Construction – Axis Architecture + Interiors
"We appreciated the beautiful presentation, including the building's context. There is a clear "front" -- a true façade. The architect used a common palette of materials -- limestone, brick, fiber cement, and wood -- in a very rich succession of layers. The combination of natural light, sustainable materials and a simple, dignified form is quite elegant. We also enjoyed the challenge of designing a nature center within an urban setting."
Merit Award – Business Furniture – Interiors – Axis Architecture + Interiors
"These interiors are handled with competence and restraint. The spaces and detailing are skillfully blended and the furniture integrates quite well with the architecture."
"The site plan and parking were expertly handled. The plan makes a few simple but effective moves, such as the entry. This is a quiet building in an open landscape."
Citation Award - University High School – New Construction – Odle McGuire Shook
"The gesture of the front space and its relationship to the campus is very strong. The use of wood on a public building is admirable, but we wonder how it will weather."
Citation Award - Regional Public Safety Academy – New Construction – SchenkelShultz Architecture
"This is an enthusiastic response for a really tough building type. We enjoyed the transparency of the entrance and the vigorous, varied and interesting interior."
