Last week was an exciting time for our JayMarc team. The 52nd Annual Gold Nugget Awards took place in San Diego, California. The Gold Nugget Awards is presented by PCBC and sponsored by Builder Magazine. The Gold Nugget Awards are the oldest and most prestigious design awards in the nation and a center piece of Pacific Coast Builders Conference. Recognizing those who improve our communities through exceptional concepts in design, planning and development, Gold Nugget Awards are open to builders, developers, architects, and land planners with communities and projects in the United States and ALL international countries.

This is the first year JayMarc Homes has entered for the award. We submitted two home designs and both earned JayMarc a Top 5 Finalist spot in their specific category!

Exciting news! – For Best Single Family Detached Home – 3,500 to 3,999 sq. ft., we submitted The Taipei home design and we are proud to announce that JayMarc Won the Grand Award! JayMarc Homes, Medici Architects and our Interior Design Director, Aimee Upper, were recognized. At JayMarc, we strive to create homes where you will love where you live and we are humbled by this amazing win. We are looking forward to sharing our new home designs with the communities we build in.

The Judges statement about The Taipei home design:

“This 3,571 square foot project takes the best from modern and traditional design aesthetics to create a family home that feels bright and welcoming. The main floor layout is optimized for entertaining, with an oversized island anchoring the open plan. A rich color palette carried from the exterior to interior finishings adds warmth, while expansive windows at the back of the house and a covered deck provide natural light and a connection to the outdoors.”
