Norton Commons Home Earns Cover Feature from Better Homes & Gardens Editors
Since Norton Commons was first conceived in 1997, there has been an intentional focus on thoughtful design. As part of the charette process, architects and planners gained inspiration from traditional architecture. Many of the classic styles of the 19th and 20th centuries are incorporated into the designs, because they work well, hold their value, and are classically beautiful. Over 20 years later, the community continues to win accolades for function and aesthetics like the 2019 Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) Charter Award, the preeminent prize for excellence in urban design that embodies and advances the principles of the Charter of the New Urbanism.
