Washington, DC - March 14, 2018 - The publisher of TRADITIONAL BUILDING and PERIOD HOMES magazines and the producer of the Traditional Building Conference Series have just notified the winners of the 17th annual Palladio Design Awards. The Palladio Design competition entries were juried by a distinguished panel of judges on March 6 at the historic George Town Club in Washington, DC. There were a record number of entries this year.

There are five winners in the commercial/institutional building categories and nine winners in the residential categories, including a three-way tie in the category for new residential design/construction under 5,000 square feet. “This year’s Palladio winners demonstrate a virtuoso of traditional design where great architecture transcends style,” said Nancy Berry, Editor of PERIOD HOMES. Martha McDonald, Editor of TRADITIONAL BUILDING added, “This might be the most competitive contest we’ve seen in the seventeen years we have produced the Palladio Awards Program.”

The Palladio Award winners will be published in the June issue of TRADITIONAL BUILDING and the July issue of PERIOD HOMES. Winners and their projects will be celebrated further at an awards ceremony and dinner on July 18 during the Traditional Building Conference at the Nassau Inn in Princeton N.J.
