Loudoun County Design Cabinet

Building Community in Loudoun County

Alan L. Hansen, FAIA, LEED AP, Director of Architecture at DBI Architects, Inc. in Reston, Virginia, started the Loudoun Design Cabinet as a way to encourage excellence in architecture in Loudoun county. The Design Cabinet is comprised of 15 design professionals, including engineers, architects, planners and designers, who come together in a fusion of creative community problem solving.

For the past 13 years, the Loudoun County Design Cabinet has worked with the Department of Economic Development to resolve community design challenges around Loudoun county. “Loudoun is an exceptional community for business and for living, in part because of the emphasis on and attention to, design excellence,” says Hansen in a recent article in the Loudoun Times-Mirror.

Activities include brainstorming design sessions, design charettes, and an annual design awards program. This year’s “Signatures of Loudoun Design Excellence” awards were given out June 7th during the Board of Supervisors meeting. To view the award-winning projects, click here>>
