Interiors

  • cooper square, new york city

    The judges praised the way the architects of this loft residence preserved parts of the raw structure while beautifully detailing the modern insertion.

     
  • bougainvillea courtyard homes, vero beach, fla.

    These four Spanish colonial homes differ dramatically from their 1970s-style ranch neighbors, but thanks to careful planning and simple massing they blend right in. Our judges noticed, with appreciation, “the real thought” given to the project.

     
  • barrio metalico, tucson, ariz.

    These nine homes were conceived as idiosyncratic, low-budget specials to jump-start a mixed-use neighborhood while the architects worked on an adjacent three-year conversion of an old icehouse into lofts.

     
  • curran house, san francisco

    The judges observed that Curran House has “great street smarts,” and what more could you ask of high-density housing for economically struggling families in San Francisco's gritty Tenderloin District?

     
  • adams row at 2301 champlain street, n.w., washington, d.c.

    This upscale condo building in Adams Morgan, a vibrant multicultural neighborhood in northwest Washington, D.C., got the nod from our judges, who admired its human element, the thoughtful use of brick, and the “Florentine palazzo concept.”

     
  • langston lofts, washington, d.c.

    Located in a historic Washington, D.C., neighborhood where automobile showrooms were standard streetscape fixtures, Langston Lofts’ scale, rhythm, and materiality put a contemporary spin on the area’s industrial past.

     
  • clean drinking house, chevy chase, md.

    Keep it simple. This was Richard P. Williams' mantra as he renovated his family's 1943 kit house. The architect knew even before he started sketching that he would upgrade the windows and add a copper roof.

     
  • orange grove, west hollywood, calif.

    Although Orange Grove looks nothing like the pitched-roof bungalows that surround it, a judge pronounced it “a good neighbor.

     
  • hover craft

    Three young architects with a passion for craftsmanship launched their new design/ build firm and this 6,000-square-foot interiors project nearly simultaneously.

     
  • pool house, amherst, mass

    An asymmetrical butterfly roof appears to float ethereally over a perimeter of clerestories.
