Atlanta-based MOSAIC Group [Architects and Remodelers] has won two regional Chrysalis Awards for Remodeling Excellence in the categories of Kitchen Remodel Over $100,000 and Residential Specialty Item. MOSAIC was one of only two Georgia remodelers to receive an award.
Begun in 1994, the Chrysalis Awards program recognizes the nation’s best work in 16 categories of residential and commercial remodeling. Entries are judged on overall design, the creative use of space and materials, and the degree to which the project enhanced the original structure.
MOSAIC’s winning kitchen is the anchor of a Williamsburg reproduction home that was built in 1968. The clients wanted a family-friendly environment where they also could entertain.
“The new kitchen is amply detailed, open and sophisticated,” said MOSAIC Group co-owner William Fadul. “It has been remodeled to fit the family’s lifestyle, yet still pays homage to the home’s history.”
The Residential Specialty Item is a curved bathroom countertop, which is made of solid walnut and crafted by a local cabinetmaker. The one-of-a-kind piece is part of a dated powder room upgrade that included a mosaic-tile backsplash, a wood-framed mirror and clear-glass pendant lights.
“When you’re confronted by a small space, it just takes a little more creativity to achieve the results you want,” said Rick Goldstein, a registered architect and company co-owner.
MOSAIC Group [Architects and Remodelers] has Indoor and Outdoor Living Divisions. It was formed from a merger of The Building Firm and DeckWright.
