We are thrilled to share with you the winners of the 18th annual Palladio Awards competition. This year we recognize 16 firms from across the country for their outstanding work in traditional design—seven in the commercial, institutional, and public architecture category and nine for residential work. All winners enhance the beauty and humane qualities of the built environment through creative interpretation and adaptation of design principles developed through thousands of years of architectural tradition.
This year we had a record-breaking number of entrants—our esteemed judges had the difficult task of narrowing down the awards amidst so many great entrants. We also added the categories of Craftsmanship and Interior Design, which brings two new disciplines to the awards.
The Palladio competition, which is the only national awards program that honors achievement in traditional architectural design, was created in 2002 by Clem Labine, founder of Traditional Building, Period Homes, and Old House Journal magazines. The awards are named in honor of Andrea Palladio, the Renaissance architect who created modern architecture for his time while using models from the past for inspiration and guidance. The program models the same criteria that Palladio used in his own work—projects should meet all of the functional needs of contemporary usage while applying lessons learned from previous generations to create enduring beauty.
We congratulate all of the winners.
Awards are presented at a dinner ceremony during the Traditional Building Conference, July 16-17 at Boscobel House & Gardens in Garrison, New York.

Palladio Awards Trophies
Thank you to Historical Arts & Casting, Inc. in Utah that creates the cast-bronze Palladio trophies using the traditional lost-wax method. The design is based on the anthemion, a motif that has been in continual use as an architectural enrichment for more than 2,500 years.
