Every industry has its gold standard for excellence. For home builders that award is the coveted HOBI (Home Building Industry) Award. Every year hundreds of industry insiders gather to celebrate the best of the best in a variety of categories.
Douglas VanderHorn’s HOBI Award-winning home
This year’s awards honored some very familiar Greenwich faces. Charles Hilton Architects and Davenport Contracting won several honors for a single project—a New-England shingle-style residence perched on Long Island Sound in Riverside. The honors ranged from Best Custom Home in the 12,000- to 14,000- square-foot category to Best Kitchen over $200,000. Another big winner was Douglas VanderHorn Architects, who garnered accolades from Best Custom Home in the 10,000 to 12,000-square-foot category as well as in the 9,000 to 10,000 category to Outstanding Special Purpose Room, which featured a third- floor basketball court with a sound-deadening floor system. Sound Beach Partners rounded out the Greenwich trifecta with their win for Best Accessory Building.
