Houdinidesign Architect is pleased to announce that Canning architect Lisa Tondino has
just won a Lieutenant Governor’s 2013 Citation in Architectural Design Award.

The Nova Scotia Association of Architects (NSAA) holds the annual architectural design
awards competition to recognize outstanding architectural design by its members.

The Citation Award is in recognition of an exceptional renovation of the Ritchie
Residence in Sandy Cove, Nova Scotia. An adaption of a barn-like structure
transformed it into a richly-textured two-storey dwelling.

Designers Judy Obersi and Alex Bolen collaborated with Tondino on the award-winning
project.

The jury consisted of Christine Macy, Dean of Dalhousie Faculty of Architecture and
Planning; George Cotaras, NSAA, MRAIC / Fowler Bauld & Mitchell Ltd.; and Jonathan
Carmichael, NSAA, MRAIC / S.P. Dumaresq Architects Ltd.

The jurors noted that the renovation was remarkable for its “rich variety of spaces” and
the architect’s “clever strategy for accomplishing privacy and light transmission across
the ground floor plan.”

The jurors reviewed 19 entries of outstanding projects for the 2013 design awards.
The presentation ceremony and reception for the Lieutenant Governor’s Design Awards
in Architecture will be held later this year at Government House, where His Honour
Brigadier-General The Honourable J.J. Grant, CMM, ONS, CD (Ret’d) will present the
Medal and Certificates to Tondino and six other award-winning designers.

Houdinidesign is currently designing a small net zero energy home near Kentville. The
company’s focus is on well-crafted, sustainable residences and small community-based
architecture. Houdinidesign welcomes new residential and commercial clients.
The Ritchie renovation will be displayed on the NSAA website: www.nsaa.ns.ca
