The Winners of the 2024 Residential Design Architecture Awards

The 2024 Residential Design Architecture Awards (RDAA) received nearly 500 entries in 11 categories of residential design. This was by far our largest and toughest program yet. With such a large number of entries from the top firms in the country and abroad, the competition was tremendous, and our judges had some very difficult decisions to make. Ultimately, they selected just 25 projects for awards, including one Project of the Year, 6 Honor Awards, and 18 Citation Awards.

Some of the winning projects may be familiar to you, and, indeed, a few have appeared previously in this magazine or have been awarded in other national and local competitions. Previous publication or award status are not disqualifications for entry. Residential projects completed after January 1, 2019 were eligible. It is always our goal that all work be considered on its own merits, regardless of media exposure.

Serving on this year’s judges panel were four talented architects with deep expertise in residential architecture: Oonagh Ryan, AIA, ORA; David O’Brien Wagner, AIA, SALA Architects; Wayne Adams, Barnes Vanze Architects; and Matt Fajkus, AIA, Matt Fajkus Architecture

The jury reviewed projects at their own pace virtually before gathering for an intense, two-day deliberation over Zoom of the strongest entries. It was an exhilarating and exhausting process, yielding a body of nationally significant and inspiring residential architecture.

Winning projects will appear in our print edition, Volume 3, 2024, and online in an expanded form with even more images and drawings.

Please join us in congratulating these amazing winning firms and consider entering your own best work in our 2025 RDAA competition.
