On July 31, 2021 in Colorado Springs, Colorado the American Institute of Building Design (AIBD) announced the 2021 winners of their American Residential Design Awards (ARDA). MMA had submitted 3 projects for consideration and attended the event virtually to hear the results.
MMA was honored to receive the highest level of recognition for all 3 projects submitted, a Grand ARDA award for Deer Haven, Hudson Valley and Riverglass. Riverglass took the top spot and was named “Best in Show” for 2021! There were more entries this year than any year since 2008 so this was quite an honor. Thank you to the AIBD and ARDA for this recognition!
About the Program The American Residential Design Awards (ARDA) is the American Institute of Building Design’s premier award program exhibiting design excellence in the residential building industry. It spotlights the most creative and innovative residential designers, builders, remodelers, architects, developers, land planners, and interior designers in the nation. Every year, the awards program recognizes exceptional design in custom, builder model, pre-drawn and multifamily homes of all types and sizes, as well as remodeling, working drawings, and projects “on the boards.” As a leader in home design recognition, the ARDA program has grown over the years to include categories in green building, outdoor living, and accessible living.
ARDA is an awards program, not a design competition. Therefore, entries are not grouped in square footage or project value classifications. Judging is conducted by a panel of residential design and construction experts and is based on the quality of the entry and not compared to others in a category. However, one or more ARDA winners may be recognized as the overall best in their specific category.
