Crown Canyon residence earns national home builders award

Posted

A mountainside showcase residence being built in Crown Canyon, an exclusive gated community in Arizona, has earned a prestigious Platinum Award from the National Association of Home Builders and its annual “Best in American Living Awards.”

CP Drewett of Drewett Works is the architect who designed this masterpiece that he entitled “Tri-Angulate” for its dramatic hillside setting with majestic desert canyon views, according to a press release.

The NAHB said of the development: “designed for a 2.75 acre parcel, Tri-Angulate’s triangular form celebrates its geometry both horizontally as well as sloping, allowing for a sense of place for the architecture within its jagged shale hillside.”

Between Paradise Valley and the Arizona Biltmore lies a uniquely hidden canyon, with 12 one-of-a-kind mountainside home-sites surrounded by the Phoenix Mountain Preserve.

“From the first moment I walked this spectacular canyon, I knew each home would require a level of unique grandeur, creating a relationship with the natural beauty of the stunning surroundings and iconic inspired architecture,” said Mara Green of MARA Interior Design. “CP Drewett has designed an architectural masterpiece, and honored with this Platinum BALA, I am excited to continue the strong architectural design with a seamless connection to the interiors creating dramatic, dynamic yet warm and understanded home, just as the beauty of Crown Canyon demands.”

The Best in American Living Awards were held virtually on Feb. 25 where more than 160 honors were given to single-family, multifamily, interior design and remodeling projects that were nationally recognized for excellence.

BALA are judged anonymously by eight industry experts including builders, architects, designers and land planners from across the U.S. Said one judge on the panel, the Tri-Angulate design “is very dramatic and very successful for its site.”

With 12 homesites, Crown Canyon is surrounded by the Phoenix Mountain Preserve and is minutes from downtown Phoenix. This private canyon will be home to some of the highest end homes in Arizona, with the average home price expected to be more than $9 million, the press release stated.

Rich Brock of BedBrock Developers said, “having the first showcase home earn a Platinum BALA sets the standard for all the homes I am building in Crown Canyon.”
