D Home Presents

Best Architects
in Dallas

Recognizing outstanding architects across North Texas.

D Home is thrilled to showcase our city’s outstanding architects with our annual Best Architects awards. We invite builders, interior designers, architects, and select homeowners to nominate the best architects in Dallas. The resulting list reflects individuals who are most respected in their industry.

All winners will be listed in the November/December 2021 issue of D Home.

Nominations Closed

Nominations for next year's program will open in June 2022.

The Process



D Home asks builders, interior designers, and architects to nominate professionals whose work they feel is the best in Dallas. Along with these industry peers, D Home subscribers are also invited to let us know which architects made their living spaces into the home of their dreams.

Nominating professionals must:

  • Be a builder, interior designer, or architect
  • Have worked with, or be familiar with the work of, their nominees

Nominating homeowners must:

    • Be a D Home subscriber
    • Have worked with, or be familiar with the work of, their nominees



Votes are tallied and sorted by D Home’s editorial staff.

The staff does not count:

  • Self-nominations
  • Duplicate ballots
  • Nominations from non-qualifying industry professionals



The remaining votegetters are vetted by an anonymous panel of esteemed members of the building, interior design, and architect community. D Home also conducts an internal review to ensure all feedback and nominees are carefully taken into consideration. All winners must be TBAE licensed, actively working, and maintain a Dallas office.

D Home editors finalize the list by verifying each architect’s:

  • License status
  • Portfolio, notes from external panelists, and current active status



We mail and email congratulations letters to the Best Architects.

After notification, our sales team is allowed to view the list and offer advertising opportunities to winners.

We play fair:

  • Advertising dollars have zero impact on the creation of this list.
  • Best Architects are featured in our November/December issue and marked as a Best Architect in our online directory whether they advertise or not.

Congratulations to our 2020 Best Architects
