2021 Gold Nugget Awards Winners Book



Only two words fairly characterize judges’ response to the Miralon, a 309-acre masterplanned community in Palm Springs, CA, reprogrammed from its initial imagining around an 18-hole golf course to a new vision of a little spot of oasis heaven on earth: Love and wonder. Working agricultural olive tree groves, lush native gardens, natural trails, orchards, and everywhere, the powerful mountainous-background presence of all nature’s offerings make this community pivot an energy and water sustainability model so many others might aim to emulate. Planners mindfully integrated neighborhoods for 1,150 Modernist-inspired new residences, and wholly rethought the community’s 12,000 square foot Miralon Club, set on 9-plus acres, all honoring Palm Springs Mid-Century Modernist soul.
