Gallaudet University Residence Halls and Union Station Pavilions win VA AIA Awards

Awards—————21 November 2014

Two of our recent projects received awards for Excellence in Architecture from the Virginia Society of the American Institute of Architects for 2014. Gallaudet University Residence Halls and the Union Station Pavilions were selected from a field of 155 entries, receiving commendation for oustanding architectural design by a jury of noted practitioners.

Gallaudet University Residence Halls are interior improvements to the University's five oldest dormitories. The project updated the public spaces within the residence halls, incorporating Deaf Space strategies developed by Gallaudet to optimize the campus environment for its unique population. This project was previously selected for the Grand Award for Universal Design by Remodeling Magazine; and Inform Magazine bestowed their highest honors to the custom millwork insertions designed to provide continuity and connection within the diverse interiors found within the residence halls.

Union Station Pavilions are public service pavilions for travelers passing through Washington's iconic terminal. Located within a parking structure suspended above the train lines,  these pavilions were designed to transform the unwelcoming space of the parking garage into a vital node as Union Station evolves into a multimodal hub. The pavilions have been making waves; the Washington Post recently revealed the hidden message in the dot-dash surface pattern on the pavilions, and they were also selected for the 2014 Awards Competition at CAMX Composites and Advanced Materials Expo, celebrating visionary concepts and products.
