Natural light and fresh air are foundational to healthier, more sustainable living spaces. Andersen launched its Bright Ideas Awards in 2021—in collaboration with Dwell—to celebrate the luminous, solar-oriented homes that embrace that thinking. Now in its second year, the awards are back and more brilliant than ever. Step inside this year’s winners and runners-up from across the country that beautifully demonstrate this design approach.
