Sanibel Island’s Walker Guest House won the favor of online voters as the top residential building in Florida during a month-long campaign by the Florida Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

“I think it is good for the island,” said Joyce Owens of AIA Florida. “It serves as a nice reminder that there is great architecture on Sanibel Island.”

More than 2.4 million votes were cast in the Florida AIA Top 100 Buildings contest to mark its 100th anniversary. The 100 Years, 100 Places celebration coincides with Architecture Month as AIA Florida hosts several events through the summer and ending with the Anniversary Celebration Event on Dec. 14.

And thanks to all who voted!
