2020 Winner - Georgetown House Stair - McInturff Architects - Photo by Hoachlander Davis Photography

For 40 years, AIA|DC and Washingtonian magazine have co-sponsored an awards competition that recognizes excellence in residential design throughout the Washington metropolitan region. The competition is open exclusively to registered architects.

Eligible projects represent single family, multifamily, or mixeduse residential buildings that characterize new construction, remodelings, additions, or adaptive reuse. Specialized housing such as senior living centers, dormitories, and emergency shelters for natural disasters may also be considered, as well as projects with universal design principles. The Washingtonian Residential Design Awards recognize residential projects, regardless of size or classification, on the basis of excellence in total design, including aesthetics, programmatic response and sustainability.
