To honor the most outstanding projects we published last year, we enlisted our readers and an expert panel of judges to select the most creative, context-driven designs across eight categories for the Dwell Design Awards. The winners, runner-ups, and community picks display imagination in their form, consideration in their materiality, connection to their environments, and innovation in how they frame a way of living.
