This year, we were stunned to receive nearly 40 entries in the categories of landscape/pool, sustainable home, bathroom, kitchen, great room, overall home under $1 million, overall home between $1-2 million, best overall home over $2 million. Each entry requires a concept statement that describes the project and often includes challenges that were presented and overcome along the way. Others indicate the inspiration, homeowner preferences and materials used to bring the project to life. Each project is gorgeously showcased through photography that highlights its incredible features and draws our readers in.

Get Excited: 2016 Home of the Year Will Be Amazing

Slide1

Every March, we have a lot of fun preparing for one of the most beloved competitions, SRQ Home of the Year. As the submission period has officially closed, we’ve spent the last few weeks preparing packets for our talented judges. Though the team at SRQ doesn’t have a say in which incredible projects are dubbed finalists and winners, we can say with certainty that we were proud to send off these fine projects. As residents and representatives of this great region, SRQ | The Magazine recognizes the power of beautiful homes and talented architects, builders and designers. As cultivators of beauty, they have a major influence on the eclectic style and personality of our homes. Collectively, these residences add up and serve as a reflection of the style our region, defining the quality of life and appreciation for beauty that our community stands for. Through the annual Home of the Year competition, we love to inspire a love for home unlike any other.

This year, the Home of the Year competition will be judged by three highly talented, out of market architects.
