Each year, a panel of building industry professionals is selected to judge new homes and communities in the Mid-Atlantic region and to choose their nominees for the Great American Living Awards. Sponsored by the Northern Virginia Building Industry Association, the Washington Metropolitan Sales and Marketing Council and the Maryland National Capital Building Industry Association, the venerable GALA Awards, held on October 9, 2014, at the McLean Hilton at Tysons Corner, have honored excellence in new home architecture, interior design, sales and marketing in our region for more than 50 years. The 2014 entries filled 37 categories; those pertaining to architecture and design included single- and multi-family homes; town homes and condominiums; and custom home and remodeling projects.
Home & Design covered the winners in the custom-builder categories in the November/December issue; on the following pages, we spotlight the remaining winners in the architecture and design categories. An alphabetical list of winning companies appears below.
