The projects up for award this year include:
CNP – Small Project Design
The commercial office space is a 4,300 square foot renovation of two adjacent existing second floor spaces in downtown Winter Haven.The challenge was how to create an open work environment and connect the two spaces. The design included tearing down most of the interior walls to create two large office spaces, preserving as many natural elements as possible, and introducing modern furniture that would be flexible with the open floor plan. Creating a dialogue between old and new, this allowed for the space to take on a life of its own. This very modern design made it the perfect fit for CNP, a creative brand agency in downtown Winter Haven, to expand into upon completion.

BlackHagen Design – Commercial Project
Eleven years – and three growth spurts – later, BlackHägen Design (BH) was feeling the growing pains of an expanding company. One year and two design layouts later, BH achieved a facility that blended the Dunedin seaside-culture with a post-modern, innovative design. The design of the space combined the quaint, old-Florida culture with a design-forward aspect – note the large glass cube coming out of the old Key West-style building. The intended result would be efficient operations and optimized convenience for BH’s clients. Embodying each of these resulted in an optimized layout for public and private spaces alike. All this was designed just blocks from the heart of Downtown Dunedin.
