Exceptional Design Awards Highlight Building Excellence

Published on
G + G House


This year’s James M. Scott Exceptional Design Awards recipients are being recognized for their commitment to design excellence that enhances the experience for people visiting each site. The honor award was given to the G+G House, a private residence described as a jewel box overlooking Lake Barcroft, and Capital One Hall, which included integral, sustainable energy measures in its urban design. The merit award went to Spring Mill House, a private residence featuring expansive windows and thoughtful landscape features, and The Residence at Colvin Run, a senior living facility with a modern cottage style.

Since 1984, these awards have celebrated exceptional planning and design projects, with sponsorship from the Board of Supervisors and administration by the Department of Planning and Development in collaboration with the Architectural Review Board and the Northern Virginia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Awards are granted in three categories – honor, merit, and honorable mention – selected by a jury of design professionals.
