Jackson Design and Remodeling Wins Two NARI Contractor of the Year Awards
The versatility and talent of JDR’s award-winning design team is on full display in the two winning projects: A chic, boho farmhouse and a Tuscan-inspired kitchen with a stunning barrel ceiling
(SAN DIEGO – February 2, 2022) – San Diego-based design build firm Jackson Design and Remodeling (JDR) wins two Contractor of the Year (CoTY) awards. JDR was named NARI 2022 Regional CotY Winner for Region 7 Southwest in the categories Entire House $750,001 to $1,000,000 and Residential Kitchen Over $150,000. Each year, NARI presents CotY Awards to remodelers who have demonstrated outstanding work. The CotY Awards are the highest form of recognition by industry leaders and peers.
The versatility and talent of JDR’s award-winning design team is on full display in the two winning projects: A Chic Boho Farmhouse and an Elegant Tuscan-inspired kitchen.
The homeowners loved the location of their new home, in La Jolla within walking distance of the beach, but needed much more room. They wanted a modern farmhouse design with an open coastal feel. The JDR team designed and built every aspect of the extensive whole home remodel, doubling the square footage and adding a second level. The new exterior charms with a clean and classic farmhouse design in modern black and white. Textured surfaces, reclaimed wood trim, and bold rattan lighting at the front door echo elements of the interior design. Inside, abundant natural light and fresh ocean breezes flow through multiple windows and glass doors. Statement boho lighting and patterned walls create individual character for each space and visual continuity for the whole home. The kitchen and dining area is open to the expansive living space and to a backyard oasis where the homeowners entertain friends and family. This welcoming retreat by the beach with chic boho details embraces California coastal living, with a modern point of view.
A retired couple who love to cook and entertain on a grand scale wanted a large, welcoming kitchen with traditional elements. The family room and kitchen in the existing design felt disconnected, and a substantial variation between ceiling heights in the two rooms made the kitchen feel dark and cave-like. The JDR team aimed to balance the scale of the two rooms and bring unity to the space with a Tuscan design with modern elements. An addition allowed for more space and the ceiling was raised. An arched window above the sink–along with new glass doors in the family room– strengthened the visual connection to a gorgeous backyard and pool. Substantial cherry cabinetry complements a meticulously crafted barrel ceiling. Wrought iron corbels on the cooktop hood and natural stone elements combine to give the new kitchen a feel of Old-World elegance. Softer design elements and layers of lighting bring a modern influence to the space, which now welcomes friends and family for large gatherings.
NARI received 410 entries from across the United States representing over $116 million in remodeling projects. NARI will honor all Regional Winners and announce the National Winners April 7, 2022 at the Annual Conference in Savannah, Georgia.
“This year’s submissions were outstanding, making the job of our esteemed judges very difficult,” said Tracy Wright, Senior Director of Membership and Chapter Services at NARI.
The judging panel representing industry experts, selected winners based on problem solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, and degree of difficulty. “The CotY Awards allow us to celebrate our members who are committed to design, best practices, integrity, high standards, and professionalism.”
