It is our pleasure to announce that the New Norris House project has been selected for a Residential Architect Design Award!
We have been awarded a Merit Award in the Single Family Housing category. Of over 800 applicants, only 36 were chosen as winners. This is a tremendous honor which we are extremely thankful for. Many thanks especially to the town of Norris, our many project partners, and all those involved with the project.
Though the announcement has been officially made, it has not yet been posted to the RA website. Check back in the coming days/week, and look for the awards in the May/June issue of Residential Architect.
The New Norris House is a design/build effort from the University of Tennessee's College of Architecture and Design. Began in 2009, the home was designed and built by UT students in collaboration with Clayton Homes. The built project is now complete and the final phase of the project has begun. A team of 4 people (2 living in the home, and 2 graduate researchers) will rigorously document the experience via qualitative assessments and quantitative measurements, posting results to this blog.
