Kerrisdale Residence is a Finalist in the 2021 Georgie Awards

  • By novelladmin

We are thrilled to announce our Kerrisdale Residence has been selected as a Finalist for the 2021 Georgie Awards®. This award is the 3rd accolade granted with special merit to Novell Design Build’s Kerrisdale Residence. It was recently awarded two Finalist honours at HAVAN Awards for Homebuilding Excellence.

Thank you to everyone involved who made this project possible. We could not create such meaningful homes without our incredible team, wonderful clients and network of great vendors.

Our Kerrisdale Residence project was a major renovation in Vancouver, BC. As Finalist in the Georgie Awards, this project has now earned 3 professional recognitions.

Every aspect of this home was designed to feel open and welcoming. This was possible in the kitchen because we engineered the home’s structural beams to be hidden within the custom millwork cabinets. This allowed for the rest of the living space — the dining room, family room and entranceway — to be opened. What was once a house full of walls and hallways became an open concept modern home. 

We’ve built the custom millwork to hide a refrigerator and offer custom storage solutions for all the family’s cooking and hosting needs. The cabinets are beautiful in their own right, but the hidden refrigerator has become a favourite party reveal.

This will be the 28th annual Georgie Awards® hosted by the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of British Columbia (CHBA BC). The Awards Gala will be held virtually in March 2021.

Georgie Awards® was established in 1992 by a group of industry professionals who decided to start a housing awards program, not for economic benefit, but to provide value to the residential construction industry and communities throughout British Columbia.

We are honoured to be included in this celebration of excellent homebuilding. This is Novell Design Build’s 15th anniversary, which feels like a fitting time for such extra celebrations.
