James Hardie Building Products Announces HardieDesign Contest Winner

James Hardie Building Products has announced the winner of the 2017 HardieDesign Contest. David Sharff Architect, P.C. of Medfield, Mass. earned top honors for the James Ord Block, which used HardiePlank lap siding with ColorPlus Technology.
 
The HardieDesign contest gave architectural firms the opportunity to showcase their multi-family and commercial projects featuring James Hardie fiber cement siding and panel products. More than 170 entries were submitted between Jan. 19 and Feb. 4, 2017.
 
The winner, announced at the AIA Conference on Architecture (A’17), will receive a grand prize package worth more than $25,000, including a full-page ad in “Dwell” magazine and a video shoot.
 
Five projects were selected as finalists by an internal judging committee based on their projects’ beauty and original use of James Hardie fiber cement siding products. Architects and other trade professionals then voted for the winner on JamesHardiePros.com to decide the grand prize winner. The four runners-up were Davis Square Architects of Somerville, Mass., The Architects Collective of Inglewood, Calif., Dwell Design Studio, Alpharetta, Ga., and Baylis Architects, Bellevue, Wash.
 
“We were thrilled to see how creatively architects and designers use our fiber cement products in both modern and traditional designs and we wanted to recognize that talent,” says Jeff Kemerley, multi-family/commercial business manager at James Hardie. “With the design of the James Ord Block, David Sharff exemplifies the versatility that James Hardie products can provide architects.”
 
The integrity of James Hardie siding and trim is an ideal combination for architects. James Hardie offers a portfolio of products that allow design professionals to bring their visions to life. To learn more about the winners and see photos from other entrants, visit here.
