2016 GALA Awards

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

2016 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 Building Industry Association, the GALA awards, held last fall at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner, honor excellence in new home architecture, interior design, sales and marketing in our region. The 2016 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.

Home & Design covered the winners in the custom-builder categories in the November/December issue; on the following pages, we spotlight the remaining Grand award-winners in the architecture and design categories.
