Kept a secret to the very last minute! Winners of the California Home & Design Awards were not announced until the night of the event. The awards event was held January 22nd at GUMPS in down town San Francisco.

While conversing with the editors of the magazine, we came to find out, three JGS projects were in the running for the award.

The Haynie Residence was recognized as “Best of California Design” in the category of Landscape Design. The “Pacific Rim” project was acclaimed for its adaptation on a Japanese garden, fusing regional style,

and mixing in native species. The landscape ties itself to its surroundings. The ipe deck framed with a patchwork of benches and concrete planters is reminiscent of the quilted pattern of the fields below.
