From the 89 projects that were submitted for consideration, the EH editorial team picked the finest entries (featuring: audio, video, lighting, automation systems and home theaters) and awarded 27 winning installations in 9 categories. Judging criteria for the Home of the Year Awards included all aspects of custom installation, such as project creativity, innovation, equipment, obstacles overcome, homeowner priorities, aesthetics and lifestyle benefits.
In total, EDG has won 14 Electronic House Home of the Year awards since the competition’s inception in 2006. This year’s winning installations will be highlighted in the Summer 2014 issue of Electronic House Magazine.
EDG’s Winning Installations/Categories:
The Theater that Booms
The sheer size and power of the electronics in this home theater is enough to make a commercial theater jealous. What’s more impressive is the pristine fit and finish of the hidden technology in a beautifully designed space that exceeded client expectations.
Luxury Outdoor Lounge
Taking the idea of “The Great Outdoors” to a new level, this home’s backyard lounge/space was renovated to be able to spend most of the year outside without giving up the conveniences of indoor relaxation.
Totally Controlled 4 the Home
This smart home got the Gold Award for a reason; everything in it is integrated and automated! With the added challenge of a tech-savvy homeowner, the EDG Team designed a system for a home that is smarter than currently existing technology.
“The three award-winning projects by EDG exemplify the superior design and installation skills required to create a pleasing harmony between a home’s architecture, a family’s lifestyle and an electronic system’s high-tech features,” says Electronic House editor Lisa Montgomery. “EDG proves that technology can have a significant impact on the comfort, convenience and enjoyment of a home without compromising its beauty or livability.”
EDG’s founder, Bob Gullo, states, “We’re excited to be recognized by Electronic House Magazine again this year”. Noting EDG’s longtime success in the Home of the Year Awards, Gullo says, “I’m really proud that the EDG Team stays at the top of its game by continuously being innovative and looking for newer, better ways to fulfill our client’s needs and design projects with advanced technology, aesthetics and professionalism in mind”.
