AUSTIN, Texas, May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Race Design, Inc., an Austin, TX Interior Design firm was named Regional Winner at the 2013 Chrysalis Awards for Remodeling Excellence in the Whole House Remodel under $250K category. The company was contracted to re-model a 1953 bungalow located in the historic Crestview neighborhood, located in Central Austin.
The goal of the project was to increase the usable living space without adding square footage, and to maintain the mid-century character of the home. These goals were accomplished by re-purposing existing porches and areas within the home, modifying the interior layout and re-using existing materials wherever possible. When new materials were needed, either period authentic or replica materials were used. This is the second national award won by Race Design, Inc. which previously received the Qualified Remodeler Master Design Award.
"We are thrilled to be named a winner in the 2013 Chrysalis Awards for Remodeling Excellence," said Kera Martin, president of Race Design, Inc. "Preserving the original design aesthetic of a complete period remodel can be daunting," Martin continued, "We understand how to re-use materials as well as source replicas to achieve the highest degree of authenticity."
"This was the first year Race Design, Inc. has entered the awards, and to take home top honors on the first attempt is impressive," says Ken Kanline, Director of the Awards. "We look forward to more entries by this innovative company in the years to come." The entries were judged on overall design, the creative use of space and materials, and the degree to which the project enhanced the original structure. Of the large number of submissions received in 16 different categories, only 78 remodeling companies from across the United States were named winners .
