The Loudoun County Design Cabinet, which is supported by the Loudoun County Department of Economic Development, has unveiled eight winners in their annual architecture and design competition. The group also announced that longtime developer, the late Bruce M. Brownell, was selected for the cabinet’s inaugural Vision in Design award, honoring significant individual contributions to Loudoun design.

“Each of these recognized projects represent and contribute to high quality and iconic design in Loudoun that convince people that this is the type community where one would like to live, work and locate their businesses,” said Loudoun Economic Development Director Buddy Rizer.

“This is a very important year recognizing Loudoun projects,” explained Design Cabinet Chair Alan Hansen. “In our 10th anniversary of the ‘Signatures of Loudoun’ design excellence program, we awarded one of the most iconic collections of projects to date. All of the selections in the program contribute outstanding design and branding to the county’s distinct architectural fabric.”

He added, “The new Vision in Design award is an extension of this concept, honoring an individual’s significant design impact in Loudoun.”

Brownell was a Loudoun native who was regarded by many as one of the county’s most creative, visionary developers until his death in 2004. Brownell’s achievements as a planner, builder and preservationist are exhibited in numerous projects throughout the county, including Magnolia’s in Purcellville and Market Station in Leesburg.

This year’s “Signatures of Loudoun” winners are:

• The Goose Creek Bridge, near Middleburg;
• The Catoctin Creek Distillery, in Purcellville;
• The Signs of Middleburg (winner of the Students’ Choice Award);
• The Walker Pavilion, in Lovettsville;
• Saint John the Apostle Roman Catholic Church, in Leesburg;
• The Lodge at Willowsford, in Aldie;
