WINTER HOLBEN wins Best of the Seacoast

With over 300,000 votes tallied for this year’s Best of the Seacoast awards, WINTER HOLBEN was honored to be chosen as the as the 2019 First Place Winner for Best Architecture and Design Firm. The award was received at the recent ceremony on August 22nd held at the Blue Ocean Music Hall. Businesses were nominated in May, and selected nominees were then voted on by the general public through the summer months and the winners were announced at a fun red carpet ceremony at the end of August .

This is the firm’s second award of 2019, following an Unbuilt Architecture Merit Award received from the American Institute of Architects in early May.  Opened in 2015, WINTER HOLBEN has taken home awards every year for their work, continually being recognized as a leading architecture and design firm on the Seacoast and beyond.  As the multidisciplinary firm approaches the 5th year in operation in the Kittery Foreside, it’s exciting to be nominated for the first time, as well as to take home the 1st place award. 

“Receiving the Best Architecture/Design firm on the Seacoast award was an honor – we feel privileged to be recognized by the Seacoast region for our commitment to innovative, exciting, contemporary design," said Elisa Winter Holben, Principal and Design Director.  "Thank you to everyone who voted for us and helped us bring this award home!”
