Exterior Home Design Award

The Gold Award in the Exterior Facelift category went to Wentworth, Inc.’s dramatic transformation of a Silver Spring, MD home’s facade. When longtime enthusiasts of residential modern architecture wanted to update their 1960s split-foyer home with the addition of a two-car garage and a distinguished front entry, Wentworth came up with a design that manages to be both functional and distinguishing. This home now truly stands out from the surrounding houses in the neighborhood!

Basement Remodeling Award

Wentworth’s design and remodel of a row house basement into an airy loft-like space took home a Silver Award in the 2011 Master Design Awards.  When the owners’ of a 1920s row house in a historic Washington, DC neighborhood came to the Wentworth team, a clever design solution for their dreary basement came to life. What was once a dark basement with a sloping floor is now modern and functional.

These award-winning projects will be featured in the October 2011 issue of Qualified Remodeler magazine.

“ What appealed to the buyers…was the balance between the old and the new, the preservation of the original features of the house, set off by the new open and lighter look. A friend who showed the house to her cousin, an architect, told me that he liked the kitchen enormously and has used it to inspire his own designs. Highest form of flattery. ”
