LaCantina Chooses Contest Winners SAN DIEGO — LaCantina Doors has announced the winners of its inaugural ar - chitects design competition – Best of LaCantina. Seven projects from across the country were awarded in the following categories: Best in Show, Best Rural Resi- dential, Best Suburban Residential, Best Urban Residential, Best Commercial, Best Compact and Most Innovative. The winning projects were judged on architectural excellence, creative design and the best use of LaCantina door and window products to completely transform open spaces and enhance lifestyle. "The projects ranged widely in typology, environmental context and size, but they all had one thing in common: Their use of LaCantina products, which allowed for a seamless connection between inside and outdoor space," commented panel judge Paul Keskeys, managing editor, Architizer. "The Best of LaCantina was an opportunity for us to see how our products translate into designs all over the country. To see how LaCantina creates a seam- less transition from indoor to outdoor living in completely different settings was remarkable," noted Lee Maughan, v.p. and general manager, LaCantina Doors. The Best in Show winner and a guest were treated to a weekend trip to New York to experience Archtober – the city's Architecture and Design Month, an annual festival of architectural tours, lectures, films and exhibitions.
