Local, State, and National AIA awards for Rear Window House

September 13, 2018

The AIA California Council has selected our Rear Window House as one of just ten honorees in the state for their 2018 Residential Architecture Award. This marks a huge achievement for us; the project is now a design award triple winner, at the local, state, and national levels of the American Institute of Architects.. Only a very tiny minority of projects ever achieve such a “triple crown” recognition from all chapter levels of the organization. We are incredibly humbled by the realization that, with this honor, our little project now has basically no AIA awards left to win!

Corner Pocket House wins highest award from AIA Long Beach | South Bay

October 27, 2017

What an amazing evening last night! Our Corner Pocket House in Manhattan Beach received the Honor Award at the AIA Long Beach | South Bay Design Awards, making it the only project out of all 42 entries to achieve this top-level design accolade. The jury was made up of three highly esteemed Los Angeles architects, Lorcan O'Herlihy FAIAAlice Kimm FAIA, and Michele Saee, who noted:

This project is simple, elegant, and thoughtfully detailed.  The site strategy deals well with its urban context and situation on a corner lot.  Exterior proportions work well complementing the excellent quality of natural daylighting of interior spaces.  The heights and volumes of spaces are nicely calibrated to the corresponding functions of the spaces.  It makes powerful use of indoor and outdoor relationships which is the project’s central concept.  In relationship to budget and scale, this project is beautifully executed and is most deserving of the honor award.

We are incredibly honored to receive this award, which is given every two years, and thank the jury and AIA LB|SB for the recognition!
