KTGY award-winning projects and communities are as follows:
Following a devastating fire, the team worked with historic restoration consultants and property owner to rebuild and restore the 1909 Colonial-style mansion and side house. A second architectural team rebuilt the kitchen and interior dining room. Careful consideration had to be made during the process as the building needed to be brought up to the current code standards while also meeting the historic preservation guidelines in accordance with the requirements of the National Register of Historic Places. The process included removing all non-historic elements that had been added to the façade over the years. The building footprint remained unchanged while the pillars and intricate details were recreated allowing the 110-year-old-buildings to feel brand new. As well as an active restaurant, this is home to a nonprofit organization which prepares and delivers 3,500+ hot evening meals daily for food-insecure kids in Orange and Los Angeles counties who are at risk of malnutrition.

The homes are designed to thrive in the daylight and shadows of the canyon neighborhood, and they are sited to naturally integrate with the features of the surrounding topography and context of the desert area. Designers created warm and cool palettes of materials and colors that are in harmony with the desert surroundings while heightening the character and inviting qualities of each customizable home.
