Honoring the best in meaningful architecture and leading-edge design, Fine Homebuilding magazine’s annual HOUSES Awards are among the most coveted in the housing industry. For this prestigious awards program, Fine Homebuilding’s editors evaluate literally hundreds of residential architecture project submissions each year from across the country, and ultimately choose to honor only 6 homes in their annual design issue.

Austin-based Danze & Davis Architects and NATiVE are thrilled to announce one of their collaboratively designed and built homes has won the Fine Homebuilding HOUSES 2015 Award as Best Energy Smart Home. Located a short distance from metropolitan Austin in the sleepy Texas Hill Country village of Driftwood, this zero net energy home is a stellar example of state-of-the-art in energy efficiency, healthful practices, smart-home technology, and end-to-end sustainability.
