The Virginia Society Chapter of the American Institute of Architects announced that two Studio Twenty Seven Architecture projects were among the winners in their annual design awards competition. The Rincon Bates Residence won an award for Design Excellence, while Mosaica Academy won a citation for Design Excellence in the un-built category. This is the second American Institute of Architects award for the Rincon Bates Rsidence in 2011. It also won an interior design award from Inform magazine, a publication of the Virginia Society Chapter.
Studio Twenty Seven Architecture, along with joint venture partner Leo A Daly, are continuing to develop their design for the District-owned "La Casa" supportive housing project. The project is an important milestone for the District in their efforts to redefine the concept of housing for the homeless community. Rather than function as a shelter, the "La Casa" project will provide permanent, supportive rather than temporary housing for forty men. Each living unit is designed as a single-person efficiency that will provide stability and predictability for the tenants as they immerse themselves in day to day living.
