It’s a common complaint that many new buildings erected in LA are boring, uninspired, and expected. Allow us to present evidence to the contrary.
The Los Angeles chapter of the American Institute of Architects has announced the winners of its design awards for homes and residential buildings. So, we’ve rounded up the winners (excluding those built outside of LA). They’re beautiful, creative, and clever.
From an apartment complex for disabled veterans in the Valley to a renovated Frank Gehry house in the Westside neighborhood of Sawtelle, the projects are the best in their field. They were designed by AIA | LA members and had to have originated after 2013.
“The program celebrates excellence in contemporary residential design at all scales and variations,” says AIA | LA. Winners were selected by a jury that included professional architects and planners, the editor-in-chief of Interiors, and the president of the real estate firm, The Agency.
