Photo by Vic Richardson The American Institute of Architects honored the firm of Burgin Lambert Architects at their annual Design Awards Program for their design of the new Town Hall. The Honor Award, selected from over 70 entries this year, was given for outstanding achievement in architectural design in the Adaptive/Reuse category.

The judges praised the simplicity and composition of the new complex, and the firm's innovative effort to preserve the historic old Town Hall by moving it on the site to accommodate the new offices.

Architect William Burgin said, "The town staff gave us tremendous support and invaluable help throughout the project. We couldn't have done it without them. Of course, we're happy to be recognized for a job well done by everyone involved."
