KGA Honored with 6 MAME Awards

At KGA Studio Architects, PC, we love the MAME Awards – it’s the single biggest night of the year for the Denver new home building industry!  For us, it feels like the Oscars and we treat it as such.   We get dressed in our finest and gather with our friends and colleagues to honor the top achievers in our industry. If you aren’t familiar with MAME, it stands for “Major Achievement in Marketing Excellence” and is the highest recognition bestowed by the Home Building Industry on individuals, companies, and communities for outstanding achievements in new home sales, marketing, merchandising, design, production and delivery.

This year, KGA was proud to receive the following 6 MAME Awards:

Best Architectural Design of a Custom Home 5,000 SF and Over

Thompson Residence
Interior Design: Cindy McCoy Design

Having lived in many cities, this young family was excited to be returning to Denver and re-establishing hometown roots. They requested a home which provides comfortable, everyday living, accommodation of large extended family gatherings, and hosting out of town guests. They imagined a home that was a retreat from a demanding schedule of business demands and associated travel.  The home, with a Colorado contemporary exterior, has an open main floor plan organized along a circulation gallery providing rooms that can be used in quiet living or flow together for large gatherings.

Green Gables

Denver’s new housing opportunities have typically occurred on the expanding edges of its suburbs. This project is indicative of builders and buyers looking for opportunities that lie closer to the urban core. Just 8 miles from downtown and minutes from a rapid transit station, this 100 acre site was once a golf course with rolling topography, a lake edge and mature trees. The project will welcome its first residents in the Spring of 2016.
