Homes & Gardens Design Awards 2020: The Winners Are Announced

Congratulations to them all

We are delighted to reveal the winners of the Homes & Gardens Design Awards 2020: Celebrating British talent. Discover who our judges see as this year’s game changers and watch our short film.

A panel of judges made up of industry experts met virtually earlier this summer – Kit Kemp, Sebastian Cox, Charu Gandhi, Barbara Chandler, Lulu Lytle and Sarah Spiteri – each bringing with them reams of nominations for every category.

It was a day of heated debate, with long discussions on the challenges of true sustainability, the joys of social media as a tool for small producers to sell through and how to define the meaning of pure innovation, but what everyone agreed on was just how rich the talent pool was.

From long established architect studios to recent graduates handcrafting alone, the entrants covered the wealth of disciplines and interests we feature in the pages of our magazine. And what each candidate had in common was that they were thriving, creating work that is both beautiful and interesting and thought provoking in some way or another.

So without further ado, let’s reveal our exceptional winners. Congratulations everyone.
