Annual American Residential Design Awards

 

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 awards 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.

All residential industry professionals are eligible to enter individual or collaborative projects. Entries previously submitted to ARDA are still eligible provided they haven’t yet won recognition in the same category. Entries may be entered in more than one category (e.g. Custom Homes and Green Design) and all completed projects are eligible regardless of their completion date.
