By Carolyn Weber. Best Residential Detached Project--over 9 du/acre; Best Single-Family Detached Home--under 1,700 square feet (compact lot) (Plan One); Best Residential Site Plan

This 14-unit-per-acre cluster community was designed to meet the needs of single professionals. Plan One (pictured) was designed exclusively for single women, and 90 percent of sales have been to that target market. This 1,030-square-foot plan is witty and flexible. For instance, if the resident has only one car, the tandem garage space can become a covered patio and an extension of the courtyard. The open plan is ideal for entertaining, and the dual masters upstairs work for guests or roommate situations.
