“Richland Library St. Andrews was such a delight to get to review. The re-use and re-imagination of a former grocery store, the interior spaces that resulted, and two new insertions...made for a really well-thought out and lovely project.” − Jury comment

“(SCPRT’s Fort Mill Welcome Center) achieves noteworthy elegance on a budget-conscious public project. It’s simple form and materials are enlivened by an attention to details. The evocative use of local materials extends a tangible welcome to the State of South Carolina.” − Jury comment

“(Charlotte Mecklenburg South County Library) yields maximum impact from a tight economy of means. A few simple gestures fill the previously dark interior with warm daylight, punctuated with the skillful use of volumetric color. This project, bodily executed, reveals a conviction that interior architecture, at its best, is a spatial exploration.” − Jury comment

“(USC-Beaufort Hilton Head Island Hospitality Management Campus) leverages an unexpected interpretation of historical references that play out in an undeniably contemporary result in both form and materials.”
