The time has come once again for the annual AIA|LA Residential Architecture Awards to recognize the best new residential designs in a city whose prosperous character is historically defined by a wealth of private homes and contingent on the continued innovation taking hold over its multifamily and social housing sectors in a brighter future.

Honor, Merit, and Citation winners were crowned in six separate categories (ADUs, Affordable Housing, Alternative Housing, Adaptive Reuse, Multi-Family and Single-Family Homes), with the Honor representing the highest distinction level of achievement.

Alone, each project is said to demonstrate a number of key outcomes and solutions to interests such as the climate crisis, fossil fuel reliance, occupants’ comfort, aesthetic quality, and more. Accordingly, judges said, the group “significantly contribute(s) to the urban fabric of our city, raising the bar for residential architecture, and setting new benchmarks.”

The chapter’s Executive Director, Carlo Caccavale, added: “These awards not only honor architectural excellence but also underscore our commitment to supporting and enriching local communities. By showcasing exemplary projects, we aim to inspire the next generation of architects and foster a dialogue about the vital role of design in urban development.”

This is the ninth edition of the program. Two additional projects received the Climate Positive Award.
