Congratulations To Our 2014 Marvin Architects Challenge Winners!

Posted: August 26, 2014

The winners have been named in the sixth annual Marvin Architects Challenge – and we are excited to share that four of them are from Hastings’ territory!

Congratulations to Best in Show winner Patrick Ahearn of Patrick Ahearn Architect LLC, and Michael Waters of LDA Architecture, Russ Tyson of Whitten Architects, and Mahdad Saniee of Saniee Architects – all winners in the general top 10 judging. While these projects demonstrate a wide range of architectural style and creativity, it’s easy to see the dramatic incorporation of natural light and the innovative use of Marvin Windows and Doors as the common threads that bind them.

Best In Show winner Patrick Ahearn said,  “Winning the Marvin Architects Challenge was a wonderful opportunity to showcase our firm’s work and celebrate the meaning of architectural inspiration.  It is especially significant to be recognized for the function and beauty of our timeless design aesthetic and our unique story-driven approach.  With each and every project, we strive to make our clients’ dream homes a reality and this recognition has elevated this notion.”

Architects Challenge winners will participate in an AIA tour of Minneapolis and spend time at Marvin’s headquarters in Warroad, Minn. for a tour of the factory.

This year’s winners, and all the entries, demonstrate how Marvin products can truly bring an architect’s vision to life – and we are proud to work with each and every one of these talented architects!  Congratulations!
