This year’s crop of honorees was inducted into the New England Design Hall of Fame last week. The Hall of Fame recognizes New England’s top architects, interior designers, landscape designers and other design pros whose “work is of the highest caliber and who have made a significant contribution to the distinction and prominence of the design field in New England.”

This year’s inductees include:

Interior Design
Charlotte Barnes of Charlotte Barnes Interior Design & Decoration, Greenwich, CT

Landscape Design
Peter White of ZEN Associates, Woburn, MA

Jacob Albert and John Tittmann of Albert, Righter & Tittmann Architects Inc., Boston
Marcus Gleysteen of Marcus Gleysteen Architects, Boston
Douglas VanderHorn of Douglas VanderHorn Architects, Greenwich, CT
Specialty Design

The honorees were chosen by a group that included 2014 Hall of Fame inductee Jim Gauthier, principal of Gauthier-Stacy; 2013 Hall of Fame inductee Patrick Ahearn, principal of Patrick Ahearn Architect; 2012 Hall of Fame inductee Morgan Wheelock, principal of Morgan Wheelock Landscape Architects; Theodore (Ted) Landsmark, president emeritus of the Boston Architectural College and a member of the board of the Boston Redevelopment Authority; and Kyle Hoepner, editor in chief of New England Home magazine.

Hoepner says, “Each year I am pleased and amazed by the depth of excellence and accomplishment shown by our inductees. The New England Design Hall of Fame not only serves as a way of bringing together the design community to recognize and celebrate such achievement, but it will also, I feel, help to assure the future of great design in New England by keeping the very best work in the public eye.”

New England Home publisher Kathy Bush-Dutton was impressed with the field of candidates. “We had a record number of nominations this year, which just goes to show that the level of exceptional talent in the New England region continues to grow each and every year. We are so excited to have seven individuals who truly represent the pinnacle of their profession and continually turn out stunning work. They will all be great additions to the New England Design Hall of Fame.”
