Nick Noyes architecture by Nashville designer Amanda Burdge

This home recently won the prestigious AIA Sunset West Home award. Nick Noyes, the architect, is undoubtably creative and disciplined. His look is always in the details, (and there are always so many details), but yet the finished product is clean, simple and refined. Located in Healdsburg California, Nick chose to use Plywood as the wall surface. And while most people may not think to use this as their finished wall surface, it works in this room because of the windows, soft white palette and high ceilings. Its superb!
