2004 RADA

  • misha/twaddell residence, san jose, calif.

    Because one of the clients for this California project uses a wheelchair, the architects designed it with accessibility in mind. But they were careful not to make it feel institutional, an achievement the judges admired.

     
  • mckeough house, block island, r.i.

    This Block Island retreat keeps the island's architectural tradition of spare buildings intended to withstand harsh conditions.

     
  • mankins-camp residence, san francisco

    The house enjoys a spectacular hilltop vista of San Francisco's skyline, but four decades of unfortunate remodels made it difficult to get past the bad taste to the great view.

     
  • logsdon restroom, des moines, iowa

    The wet spaces become a piece of sculpture ... something completely different ... it speaks to a broader view of what you can do in a bath," were some of the praises showered on the renovated bath (the only bathroom) in this 1,500-square-foot home.

     
  • jackson street bathroom suite remodel, san francisco

    Lustrous materials and ruthless editing transformed this Edwardian attic into an ultra-Modern master suite.

     
  • houghton residence, omaha, neb.

    One programmatic move transformed the kitchen of a traditional builder house into an urbane space that works as well for intimate dinners as it does for large parties.

     
  • homesafe, san jose, calif.

    The judges called HomeSafe "a friendly, welcoming place"—exactly the type of reaction Studio E Architects hoped to evoke.

     
  • harold way apartments, hollywood, calif.

    The judges admired the way this Hollywood, Calif., affordable housing engages the street. This effect results from much wrangling by Koning Eizenberg Architecture, which won several plan exceptions from the local zoning board.

     
  • hannah's house, memphis, tenn.

    Architect Todd Walker is a Modernist, but he realizes that for some people the style has an ascetic quality to it. So when he set about designing this kitchen for his small family, he wanted to achieve a space that was softer and gentler and, most important, didn't take itself too seriously.

     
  • eleventh street residence, santa monica, calif.

    To meet their clients' slim budget for this Santa Monica, Calif., custom home, Koning Eizenberg Architecture decided to think of it as a "Crate and Barrel" house.
