To maximize the small lot sizes in the Contempo Collection community in South Jordan, Utah, Sego Homes created a floor plan with large, private outdoor living spaces that accentuate the land’s proximity to the Wasatch Range. The Innovator, one of five floor plans in the single-family community, features two-story vaulted ceilings in the living room, three stories of floating staircases, and a large roof deck to provide residents with outdoor entertainment space as well as a place to enjoy the surrounding landscape. The roof deck overlooks the braided river below, the lake, and community running trails.

The plan’s sky terrace room provides residents with an open, dramatic place to enjoy family time as well as drinks from the room’s wet bar.

The Innovator’s spacious master bedroom offers homeowners ample natural light, and the airy downstairs living room features high ceilings and a two-story fireplace.

The jurors identified the sky room, the double-vaulted ceiling in the living room, and the roof deck as project highlights, noting that “not every house affords [the] experience” delivered by the roof deck and exterior living spaces.

For simplified, secure living, homeowners can have orders delivered in the package locker door located next to the front entry. Plus, a grocery door connects the garage and prep kitchen, allowing for quick and easy unpacking.
