ICON Palm Springs Wins a Gold Nugget for Best Architectural Design of a Single Family Detached Home at the 2019 Gold Nugget Awards Presented by PCBC and the California Building Industry Association Judges for the 2019 Gold Nugget Awards announced the Danielian-designed ICON Palm Springs project a Grand Award winner. Built by Far West Industries with interiors designed by AI Designs, the ICON collection features modern architecture and an authentic Palm Springs experience with ample room for entertaining and indoor-outdoor living throughout. The open floor plans and generously sized flex room options ensure that homeowners can customize each new home and make it their own. ICON Palm Springs had previously been announced as a Merit Award winner in early May in anticipation of the 56th Gold Nugget Awards ceremony. “The relatively small square footages of these floor plans were a bit of a challenge. The design team was asked to develop a modern architectural theme that carried seamlessly from the exterior to the interior and ‘lived much larger’ than its true size,” said John Danielian, AIA, President at Danielian Associates. “Our firm takes great pride in working collaboratively to develop design solutions that support successful projects and enable our clients to meet their goals. I am very proud to say that we achieved those results at ICON.” The 56th Annual Gold Nugget Awards were held on Friday, May 31st in San Francisco, CA in conjunction with the PCBC Show. Each year the awards recognize outstanding architectural and planning achievements in home and community design, retail and commercial design, site planning, mixed-use development and specialty housing categories. Grand Award winners were selected from a pool of over 600 submissions with all entries judged by esteemed industry professionals. ICON Palm Springs was announced the Grand Award winner out of a revered group of finalists in its category, including Trilogy at Monarch Dunes – Valles Collection – The Solvang by Shea Homes and Bassenian Lagoni Architecture, Vita at Altis – Plan 3 by Pardee Homes and Bassenian Lagoni, and Altura – The Bryce by McCaffrey Homes and KTGY Architecture + Planning.
