The Global Choice Award entries are placed on a dedicated webpage and made available for public viewing and the acceptance of votes from around the world. This year we broke our previous years’ records with 2400 votes, compared to last year’s 660 votes. The most votes come from designers promoting their own entries while AIBD promotes the award on Facebook and Houzz.

This year’s Global Choice winner received 713 votes, and at one point held the lead by only 5 votes.

The winner was Macpherson Construction & Design, designers: Roger MacPherson, Bob Sorensen, and Emily Treece, from Sammamish, Washington.

The ARDA Best In Show is chosen from this year’s Grand ARDA’s by the judges. This award goes to the entry that our judges felt best exemplifies the spirit of the American Residential Design Awards.

This design has a great use of flow despite the challenging limitations of the width of the home. The judges said this design is a charming model home with a well-designed efficient plan. Architectural language is consistent through the interior of the home, and the exterior is an inviting representation of coastal design.

The award for Best In Show went to Ashton Woods, Designers: Valerio Muraro with Centro Stile from Roswell, Georgia.
