New Hampshire Home recently hosted their Third Annual Design Awards ceremony; a program that honors and celebrates excellence in home design and the creative use of materials in new, remodeled and historic residences. We’re pleased to share that TMS Architects received three awards and one honorable mention for our work! Read on to see some of our award-winning designs…


Family Room Design by TMS Architects

Family Room Reinvention: Winner for Excellence in Interior Design

The homeowners of this beautifully renovated space used to run a small business out of their home. We transformed their former shipping and warehouse space into a cozy family room. Strong colors on the walls, drapes, and upholstery add drama, and a roaring fire and flat screen TV make this room an ideal place for the family to kick back and relax.

In-Town Renovation: Winner for Excellence in Remodeling/Renovation

The new homeowners of this historic in-town residence wanted to preserve the formal aesthetics of their home, but needed additional space to meet the needs of their large family. We added a new three car garage, pool house, and mudroom, which allowed easier access to a new south-facing exterior terrace. Inside, we gave the kitchen and bathrooms a much-needed contemporary update and added a pantry, rear stairway, family room, and master bedroom — all while carefully preserving any historic features.

Beacon Hill Beauty: Winner for Excellence in Small Home Design

We put every inch of this 400 sq ft condo to good use! The combination of the old world charm of Beacon Hill mixed with a more contemporary kitchen and bath eloquently speaks to the melding of the past and the present. As the residence is used primarily in winter months, the design and furnishings evoke a cozy and sumptuous nest.

Maine Lakeside Cottage: Honorable Mention for Excellence in Architectural Design

The goal of this newly designed vacation home was to evoke a comfortable, casual Maine woods style home reflective of its natural lakefront setting. A sage green metal roof and fieldstone foundation and chimney help the home blend seamlessly into its surroundings, while large picture windows allow for stunning views of the lake. Inside, canoe paddle balusters, moose silhouette cutouts on the exterior shutters, and shutter brackets in the shape of airplane propellers reflect personal touches of import by the owners.

We are so grateful to have our work recognized by New Hampshire Home, and continue to strive for this level of excellence in all of our upcoming projects.
