2009 GOHBA Housing Design Awards - 17

Tartan general manager Ian Nicol was juggling three trophies for suburban triumphs, including a low-rise condo, the Java, located in the Stittsville community of Jackson Trails, an appealing stone and brick two-storey semi-detached home in Findlay Creek, and the Whitney, a large single home, also located in Findlay Creek. Holitzner beat out Campanale and Phoenix Homes to win with its well-finished Stittsville single in the category reserved for homes ranging between 2,001 and 2,499 square feet. Richcraft scored two honours, teaming up with Potvin Kitchens and senior designer Daniel Gauthier for a shocking green kitchen and detailed tile work in the bathroom of his Besserer Street condo. Potvin and Richcraft worked together on the builder's Kanata Lakes model, the Majestic, earning honours for a creamy white and chocolate-brown kitchen. The Majestic also beat out Cardel and Tartan to take top honours for a home between 2,600 and 3,499 square feet. John MacDougall and Peter Splinter of Uniform Urban Developments couldn't stop smiling after winning Project of the Year for a collection of family homes in Rockcliffe Park and a second trophy for The Avenues in Westboro. Barry Hobin collaborated with Uniform on both projects, delivering his popular styling of clean, square shapes and lots of glass. It was also a night for energy-smart designs and a sign that even the largest builder recognizes the housing industry is going to have to change. Minto earned its third trophy for the Green LEED Home of the Year for its Equilibrium Demonstration House in Manotick, an unassuming Cape-Cod design that can operate without leaving an energy footprint or can actually generate energy, selling it back to the grid. On a smaller scale, Steve Barkhouse proved you can be recognized for going green creatively. The popular builder, who has won the renovator honours in the past, won Green Renovator of the Year and honours for Housing Detail, thanks to an innovative green renovation he did on Pretoria Avenue where the exterior was transformed into an artist's canvas. Ottawa architect Linda Chapman, teaming up with Rex Engel, was recognized for Green Home of the Year for a brick bungalow with innovative skylights in the living room. Awarded for their kitchens and bathrooms were industry heavyweights Deslaurier Custom Cabinets and A. Potvin Construction. Sheila Brady is the Citizen's Homes editor.
