Bread Loaf Corporation of Middlebury and Fradkin & McAlpin Architects
The Nicole Goodner MacFarlane Science, Technology & Innovation Center at Landmark College
Honor Award: Large Project
Jury comments: Simple massing and an elegant composition, presenting carefully ordered but slightly different faces to the public and private domains. The different interpretations of the traditional arcade on the two main facades are both interesting and effective.
Gossens Bachman Architects of Montpelier
Co-op Plaza Redevelopment, Brattleboro
Merit Award: Large project
Jury Comments: A modest project that uses the new building to remediate an urban condition – the urban gesture is subtle and effective. The materials, colors and composition of the façade acknowledge the existing context and break down the scale of the new intervention.
Birdseye Design of Richmond
Champlain Modern, Shelburne
Honor Award: Medium Project
Jury comments: A well-ordered plan that plays the 45 degree wall against the right angle with great care and evident skill – there are no awkward corners. The house expresses less ‘Champlain Modern’ than Arts and Crafts, with a richness of detail that recalls Frank Lloyd Wright’s sense of material ornament.
Ryall Porter Sheridan Architects of New York, NY
Vermont Integrated Architecture, P.C. of Middlebury
Writer's Studio, Cornwall
Honor Award: Small Project
Jury Comments: An existing building, skillfully restored around a wonderful interior space that has been transformed with imagination, ingenuity and technical virtuosity. The new hardware associated with the sliding mezzanine is simple, thoughtful, familiar but clearly innovative, and even playful. The project is marked by a high level of consistency between language and imagination.
Harry Hunt Architects of Stowe
Simple House, Stowe
Honor Award: Small Project
Jury Comments: Beautifully composed – a simple and familiar form enriched with a contemporary covered wrap-around gallery that provides shade from the sun and extends the space of the house. Very convincing, revealing a high level of design control from the interior to the exterior.

Jury Comments: A special design-build project that belongs in a separate category – small in scale but beautifully crafted. A fine example of community engagement marked by good design and careful attention to the craft of building. The entire process was collaborative and participatory, and the result is beautiful.
