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 2017 Awards Ceremony
Winners received their awards at an elegant reception and cocktail party on Wednesday, May 10 in West Hollywood. The evening was graciously hosted by MASS Beverly and Minotti Los Angeles.

AIA|LA Los Angeles President Doug Teiger, AIA - Managing Principal, Abramson Teiger Architects, along with the awards' program jurors, each announced award recipients.
