About the Residential Architecture Awards
Southern California has always been a dynamic global incubator for dazzling residential architecture. The AIA|LA Residential Architecture Awards (RAA) were founded, in part, to highlight the area’s contemporary contributions to the typology. Celebrating a multiplicity of approaches, the RAAs recognize both simply beautiful design and projects that offer the innovative or edgy as they address new urban and environmental conditions. Submissions were encouraged in the full gamut of scales from single-family residences of under 2,500 square feet to multi-family residential of more than 50 units.

About the 2016 Awards Ceremony
Winners received their awards at an elegant reception and cocktail party on Thursday, May 26 at a private home in the Hollywood Hills. The evening was graciously hosted by the celebrated design publication Interiors magazine and prestigious real estate firm The Agency.

AIA|LA Los Angeles President Debra Gerod, FAIA, Partner, Gruen Associates; Editor in Chief of Interiors, Erika Heet; and Founder and Partner of The Agency Blair Chang, each announced award recipients.
