The American Institute of Architects (AIA) announced the winners of their 18th annual Housing Awards, which recognize the best in housing design for new constructions, restorations, and renovations. This year the five-person jury selected eleven projects to receive awards in four categories: one- and two-family custom residences; one- and two-family production homes; multifamily housing; and specialized housing.

According to the AIA, the jury assessed each project for demonstrating design excellence, as well as sustainability, cost, durability, innovation, social impact, meeting client needs, and addressing the natural and built contexts.

The following projects were selected as this year’s winners:
