2017 DCC Award Winner
DeWhitt Residence, Tom Ralston Concrete
First Place: Multiple Applications / Under 5000 SF
DeWhitt is an imaginative project conjuring images of a movie set. The Mount Oomunhum bench was constructed to mirror the nearby mountain.
The bench was constructed over a foam base using peat moss and sea sponges to create the lichen and multiple colors for the rocks. The fire pit includes custom bronze snakes with LED eyes imbedded into a filled glass mold. Larger bronze snakes adorn the countertops and backsplashes made with green color hardener and with numerous steel tube conduits running through them. Countertops have blue veins and over 300 individual fiber optics that were a tremendous challenge to construct. The owners were ecstatic with the year long effort. Judges were impressed with the intricate details, and the ability to create something never seen before.
