Recently at the annual Pacific Builders Conference in San Francisco, Aspen-based Charles Cunniffe Architects was named the Gold Nugget Grand Winner for home renovation.The work involved a residence in Fullerton, Calif.The judges stated: “This is quite possibly the most amazing make-over ever. Due to restrictive city codes and the proximity of a river, the foundation could not be altered, yet the architects managed to transform a specimen of terribly bad 1980s architecture into a work of art. “The new design uses reverse shed dormers to capture mountain views, opens up the interior spaces to sunlight and breezes, and re-faces an existing ugly fireplace with a patina steel surround that commands attention but in a good way.”
