Portsmouth, NH – DeStefano Architects (D|A) was honored to receive the 2016 People’s Choice Excellence in Architecture Design Award from the American Institute of Architects New Hampshire chapter (AIANH). The Excellence in Design Awards provide public and professional recognition for architectural projects of design excellence by New Hampshire architects. This year the awards were presented at the 32nd Annual Design Awards Gala, held at LaBelle Winery in Amherst.
D|A’s lake region residential design, entitled “Summer Serenity”, was voted to win the People’s Choice Award in an online poll, selected out of 42 entries. The 9,000 square foot residence was designed so every room has a view of the water. The site was developed by carefully chosen masters of trade. Custom millwork and impeccable landscape architecture helped win this home the award. D|A is pleased to share the award with the project team: Jonathan Lovering & Sons served as the General Contractor, Urban Dwellings provided interior design and Rob Hoover of HBLA served as the project’s landscape architect. Residential design of the home was previously recognized and awarded by the New Hampshire Home Builder’s Association in 2015.
