Congrats to all of this year’s Atlanta BALA Award winners! The 2022 Best in American Living Award (BALA) finalists and Hall of Fame inductees have been announced, and it’s pretty exciting to see such a strong showing from the peach state!

Spotlighting creative and talented building industry professionals who have redefined design excellence for homes and communities, the BALA awards are the building industry’s premier residential design awards program, both nationally and internationally. Winning projects exemplify the best in design trends, and now the finalists are waiting to find out if they will earn Silver, Gold or Platinum on Wednesday, Feb. 1, at 5 p.m. during the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas.

Top projects will be named regional winners, and the best of the best will be crowned Home of the Year, Room of the Year, Remodel of the Year, Multifamily Community of the Year, or Community or Community Facility of the Year.
