Marvin announced the winners of its fourth annual myMarvin Architect’s Challenge last week, selecting eight design projects from across the U.S. and one in Ireland. Winners were chosen based on solution-driven design, classical beauty, innovative use of windows, and sustainability.
“The combination of creativity and solution-driven design we see in the winning projects is breathtaking,” said Christine Marvin, marketing director for Marvin Windows and Doors. “In today’s architecture, windows and doors play an increasingly important role in structure, aesthetics and overall building performance.
