Judges Statement

: In 2013, Joan Irvine Smith, great granddaughter of California pioneer James Irvine, sold her legendary equestrian facility for development. She

selected a homebuilder dedicated to honoring and preserving the legacy of the facility. Today the iconic property has been transformed into something extraordinary.

As a result of the creative design team’s efforts, the equestrian facility still thrives on the southern portion of the land with newly created arenas, meandering stone

walls, a social barn and authentic working barns. Meticulous planning saved 100-year-old oak trees and 75 custom lanterns replaced standard street lights. Materials

repurposed from old barns are woven into the new community.

Just steps away, 32 new homes embrace the history of the neighborhood with a modern farmhouse and adobe ranch architecture. The design team played homage to

the rich historical character of the community.

Half the homes adjoin a five-foot-deep bio-retention swale allowing low backyard walls to amplify the views. All plans have dramatic high-volume ceilings, half of which

provide direct sight lines to the daily pageantry of world class equestrians-in-training. Walls of glass provide seamless indoor/outdoor living experiences.

The jury felt some of these thoughtful details created a once in a lifetime opportunity and the residential project of the year.
