The winners of this year’s Professional Builder Design Awards show design virtuosity, skillful site use, and eco-smarts
The Professional Builder Design Awards competition recognizes individuals across the U.S. who design and build homes that demonstrate construction quality, innovation, practical and compelling design, and success in the marketplace.
Open to builders, developers, architects, interior designers, land planners and designers, the Professional Builder Design Awards named nine gold, 11 silver, and two bronze winners for 2017 in categories including custom homes, multifamily, and single-family homes of various sizes. Dancing Light, a 6,200 square-foot home in Arizona influenced by desert boulder fields and Native American cliff dwellings, was awarded Project of the Year.
