2015 GALA Awards

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

2015 GALA Awards 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 & Marketing Council and the Maryland National Capital Building Industry Association, the venerable GALA Awards, held last fall at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner, have honored excellence in new home architecture, interior design, sales and marketing in our region for more than 50 years. The 2015 entries filled 43 categories; those pertaining to architecture and design included single- and multi-family homes, townhomes and condominiums and custom home and remodeling projects.
