Judges for the 2015 Gold Nugget Awards have named Quadrant Homes as an Award of Merit winner in the annual competition, which honors architectural design and planning excellence and draws entries from throughout the United States and internationally. Quadrant earned Merit honors for the EVOKE Luxe home, which was honored for excellence in single family residential design. "It's an honor and privilege to receive this award, especially being judged among so many worthy peers," said Ken Krivanec, president of Quadrant Homes. "This recognition underscores Quadrant's commitment to bringing the very best in home design to the Puget Sound region." Chosen from the elite pool of Merit Award winners, Grand Awards will be announced on June 25 as a feature highlight of PCBC®, the nation's largest regional conference and trade show for the real estate development field. Located in Issaquah, the EVOKE Luxe is a contemporary single family luxury home designed for year-round indoor/outdoor Northwest living. After two successful years on the market, Quadrant Homes will be incorporating the best of EVOKE into its other premium home lines going forward. "Gold Nugget Award winners reflect our industry's best, brightest and most innovative architects, planners and builder/developers," said Lisa Parrish, judging chairman and Gold Nugget ceremonies administrator. "We applaud them all, and we look forward to our June 26 celebration of Merit and Grand Award winners."
