The 2021 Home & Design Awards

Check out the 31 winners of San Antonio Magazine’s inaugural competition. 

Just as the landscape of San Antonio and its surrounding areas varies drastically, so too does the range of architecture and design found in the neighborhoods of our sprawling metro area, from modern urban abodes and historic renovations to expansive suburban estates and countryside farmhouses.

Dee Howard Residence Gets an Update

“Castle Hills is on Loop 410 nine miles north of downtown San Antonio. It was developed in the 1950s as a residential area with large lots, many featuring ranch-style homes.
