The Palm Springs House was the coveted Grand Award winner for Best Custom Home (4,000 to 8,000 square feet) at the 2016 Gold Nugget Awards. The Gold Nugget Awards honor architectural design and planning excellence and draws from entries internationally.
The judges praised the home, calling it “a minimalist design with impeccable detailing [making] the house recede into the landscape… the careful curation of views makes this hillside retreat a delight that gives the clients access the natural environment from the comfort of their own home.”
Congratulations to the Booth Hansen design team and D.W. Johnston Construction on this achievement.

The Booth Hansen designed storefront at the historic Palmolive Building is now complete. The storefront design restores and incorporates original historic elements of the 1929 Holabird and Root design, while modernizing the glass storefront to maximize the presence of world-class retail occupants. The subtle and refined details express the overall aesthetic of the project: clean, modern lines to enhance the retail experience while respecting the historic building design.
