The winners of its prestigious 2016 Design Awards program




 
The American Institute of Architects Los Angeles (AIA|LA) announced the winners of its prestigious 2016 Design Awards program Monday night, October 24, 2016, at an evening celebrating the achievements of recipients.

Selected by a jury of distinguished architects based across the United States and conversant in the field’s potential at national and international levels, the AIA|LA Design Awards honor design excellence in some of the most significant completed projects in the country at this time. Arshia Architects was selected for its MU77 project in Los Angeles.

 

Located on Mulholland Drive, this single-family residence scheme was molded by the strict regulations of the Mulholland Scenic corridor plan along with extreme site constraints. The residence is integrated into the surrounding landscape with a geometric appearance mimicking the terrain and sudden deviations of rock formations within the natural landscape. Sunken 18 feet below street level to ensure clear views from the street atop the building, fitting the project within the two story envelop became the main limitation. The private rooms and a convertible office with a sliding partition wall is housed in the upper level and the main living and entertainment centers were situated on the lower level, aligned with the outdoor deck and infinity pool.

 

About Arshia Architects

 

Founded in 2006, Arshia Architects is an architecture and design practice that emerged from the tectonic breach of the aesthetic experience and the act of building - purposely fusing this gap with novel substance.

 

 

 

Arshia Architects' Los Angeles-based practice is dedicated to the exploration of space and the built environment. They are committed to new ways of thinking in space that provide unique solutions to the complex challenges and parameters that affect architecture. They aim to collaborate with disparate disciplines, entering a dialogue with the environment, believing that such partnerships create emergent qualities in architecture.

 

 

 

The practice has been recognized with citations and awards from the American Institute of Architects, the Los Angeles Architecture Award and the Japan Architect Award. This body of work has been published internationally and was selected by ACADIA and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) as one of the participants in the first retrospective exhibition on Contemporary Architecture in Southern California – focused on the top 35 radical practices to emerge within the past twenty-five years.
