Best small home design: Into thin air
Project: Opie-Burleigh itHouse, Three Rivers, CA
What we love: Jurors were wowed by this striking glass house built of components shipped from all over the country directly to the picturesque site in the Sierra Foothills.
It's small in size (1,200 square feet), but makes an eye-popping impact.
Design: Taalman Koch Architecture, Los Angeles (213/380-1060)
