Douglas VanderHorn Architects Awarded Best Of Houzz 2015 image002image013image011

January 29, 2015 (Greenwich, Connecticut) - Houzz, the leading platform for home remodeling and design, has honored Douglas VanderHorn Architects with two "Best Of Houzz" awards for Design & Service. The firm, best known for its classic new homes along the Greenwich waterfront, was chosen by more than 25 million monthly unique users that comprise the Houzz community from among a large number of active home building, remodeling and design industry professionals.

The Best Of Houzz award is given in two categories: Design and Service. Design award winners' work is the most popular among more than 25 million monthly users on Houzz.  Service honors are determined by a variety of factors, including the number and quality of client reviews a professional received in 2014. "Best Of Houzz 2015" profile badges help Houzz users around the world who discover and love a professional's work to learn even more about that business' popularity and satisfaction rating among their peers in the Houzz community.

"Houzz is not just a popular platform to present our portfolio of work, it's also an interactive tool to use with our clients to develop the design for their home," said Doug VanderHorn, Principal of Douglas VanderHorn Architects. "Utilizing shared ideabooks has proved to be an easy, up-to-date way to understand exactly what our clients are envisioning."

Liza Hausman, Vice President of Industry Marketing for Houzz said, "Houzz provides homeowners with a 360 degree view of home building, remodeling and design industry professionals, empowering them to engage the right people and products for their project. We're delighted to recognize Douglas VanderHorn Architects among our "Best Of" professionals as judged by our community of homeowners and design enthusiasts who are actively remodeling and decorating their homes."
