Another custom Alys Beach home has captured a national architectural award, this time from a field of over 1,100 competing entries.
Currently in its tenth year, the Residential Architect Design Awards (RADA) is the most prestigious and competitive residential architecture awards program in the country, with only 10 "Grand Awards" being awarded this year. The winning Alys Beach home was designed by locals Erik Vogt, AIA, and Marieanne Khoury-Vogt, AIA, and captured the "Grand Award" in the "Single-Family Production / Attached" residential category. The home is named House of the Papyrii and it's located at 30 Whitby Court.
The RADA honor follows on the heels of yet another national award for the husband and wife team. The firm was also recently honored for their "Caliza" pool and restaurant design when it won one of only eleven 2009 Palladio Awards.
"It's so rewarding to be able to work on projects that you love," said Marieanne Khoury-Vogt. "So it's especially exciting for these designs to be honored at a national level."
This year's RADA jury was comprised of six distinguished architects, including Gary L. Brewer, AIA, Robert A.M. Stern Architects, New York City; William Kreager, FAIA, Mithun, Seattle; Mell Lawrence, FAIA, Mell Lawrence Architects, Austin, Texas; Mark McInturff, FAIA, McInturff Architects, Bethesda, Md.; John Sheehan, AIA, Studio E Architects, San Diego; and John Vetter, AIA, Vetter Denk Architects, Milwaukee.
The winning home project was featured in Residential Architect magazine, while Caliza's Palladio Awardwas featured in the June 2009 of Traditional Building.
CONGRATS ERIK & MARIEANNE!
