The American Institute of Architects (AIA) recognized 14 exceptional residential designs with its 2022 Housing Awards

AIA’s Housing Awards program, now in its 22nd year, was established to recognize the best in housing design for new construction, renovations and restorations. Projects were selected from eight possible categories: one- and two-family custom residences; one- and two-family production homes; multifamily housing; specialized housing; excellence in affordable housing; mixed-use community connection; community-engaged design; and universal dwelling design.

This year’s recipients were selected by a four-person jury that evaluated entries relative to the AIA Framework for Design Excellence, which represents the defining principles of excellent design in the 21st century. Specifically, the jury looked at whether designs are sustainable, affordable, durable, innovative, socially impactful, meeting client needs as well as addressing the natural and built contexts.
