CCM Students Gain Top Awards in Stickley Craftsman Farms Design Competition

Students Design a Café for the National Historic Landmark
County College of Morris (CCM) interior design students Ju Young Kim, of West Orange, recently was presented with the first place award and Piya Jain, of Parsippany, with the second place award in the college division of the Stickley Craftsman Farms Design Competition.

Selected through a competitive application process, participants were given six-hours to design a café, including a three-dimensional model, for the grounds of Craftsman Farms, a National Historic Landmark in Morris Plains. Prior to the challenge, students were given an introduction to Gustav Stickley and Arts and Crafts design, along with a tour of Craftsman Farms and the proposed café site, an abandoned garage building on the property.

The competition, which took place in April, was a partnership between the Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms and the Robert Busch School of Design at Kean University. Students from 11 schools competed in two divisions: high school and college. The jury selected two winners in each division.

The Stickley Museum, completed in 1911, is the only home that was designed and built by Gustav Stickley for his own use.
