2021 People’s Choice round 1 voting: Production homes, condos

It’s time to have your say: Round 1 voting has begun for the 2021 All Things Home People’s Choice Award!

The People’s Choice Award is a prestigious trophy given out at the annual Housing Design Awards — a much-anticipated celebration of the Ottawa housing industry’s finest in design that’s put on by the Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association.

All Things Home was honoured to take on sponsorship of the award this year, particularly since it’s the only trophy in the awards program that’s chosen by the public. The award was previously sponsored by the Ottawa Citizen.


Over the next seven weeks, you can vote online for your favourite entries in several preliminary rounds, with the finalists from each round squaring off in a final round to determine the winner.

Voting schedule

Round 1: Sept. 21-26 — production homes + condos
Round 2: Sept. 28-Oct. 3 — custom homes
Round 3: Oct. 5-10 — renovations
Round 4: Oct. 12-17 — kitchens
Round 5: Oct. 19-24 — bathrooms
Round 6: Oct. 26-31 — design details + green homes
Final round: Nov. 2-7 — choose your favourite from the top projects in each of the first six rounds

The winner will be announced at the online awards gala Nov. 19.


2021 People’s Choice Round 1

First up are production homes and condos. From townhomes to singles, high-rises to condo units, there are more than 25 designs to choose from. These homes range from calm neutrals to bold choices and a few unexpected decisions in what are typically builder show homes built to entice buyers to purchase.

Homes range from rentals and entry-level homes for sale to luxury homes and condos.

You can vote on the Round 1 entries now and until Sunday, Sept. 26 at


Along with the photos above, here’s a sampling of the projects from each of the companies who are entered in this round:
