One honor award recipient was DeStefano Architects, LLC, of Portsmouth, for a house perched high on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Jutting forms and crashing volumes mirror the relationship between land and sea on this craggy Maine shoreline. Next week we'll look at this and some of the other award winners.
