GALA 2014 Awards—Custom

The Great American Living Awards recognize the best in home design and community planning in Maryland, DC and Virginia

Presented by the Northern Virginia Building Industry Association and the Maryland Building Industry Association, the 2014 GALA (Great American Living) Awards—celebrating achievements in categories ranging from architecture and interior design to sales and marketing—saw some significant changes in the custom building and renovation categories this year. Rather than visiting each entry, the judges—four residential architects and a residential marketing professional—evaluated portfolio submissions instead. This shift encouraged a larger pool of entries in the custom categories.

The 2014 GALA Awards ceremony was held at the McLean Hilton in Tysons Corner on October 9. Winners of the custom categories are spotlighted on the following pages, while the remaining award-winners will be featured in the January/February 2015 issue of Home & Design.
