Donut Hole to Receive ‘Design Excellence Award’ on April 5

The Scenic Corridor Foundation (SCF) recently announced Donut Hole in Inlet Beach as the winner of its Design Excellence Award for this quarter. Owner Brent Chandler will receive the award at a special presentation ceremony on April 5, 2018, at 9 a.m. at Donut Hole’s Inlet Beach location.

Scenic Corridor Foundation created this award in 2017 to recognize businesses and developers who build or renovate projects that best exemplify the intent of the Scenic Corridor Guidelines established for developments on U.S. 98 and U.S. 331 S. in Chapter 13 of the Walton County Land Development Code.

“We designed this award for businesses that adhere to Scenic Corridor guidelines for architecture, landscaping, signage and other areas,” said Foundation Board Member Leigh Moore.

The architect who designed the building, Geoff Chick, will be commended for his contribution to the project. Scenic Corridor Foundation will also recognize the contribution of landscape architect Brad Davis, who designed the landscaping, and Karen Sinclair Kerns, who designed the interior and outdoor furniture for the project.

This is the third consecutive recognition for Davis, who was also the landscape architect for two other projects – John Fayard Self Storage and Tom Thumb in the Sandestin area – both previous recipients of the Design Excellence Award.
