For AN’s third annual design awards, seven jurors gathered in New York to review nearly 500 projects submitted by architects and designers.

The jury included Amale Andraos, dean of Columbia Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation; Nicholas Koster, project manager at Snøhetta; Chee Perlman, editor and curator of Chee Company; Ana Garcia Puyol, computational designer at Thornton Tomasetti; Ali Tayar; founder of Parallel Design Partnership, Terence Riley, founding partner at Keenan/Riley, and Mimi Zeiger, AN’s west coast editor.

In each category, a winner and an honorable mention were selected, although there were a couple of ties. Over the coming days, we will be posting their selections in the 21 categories.

Interior Residential Winner


Gerken Residence
Architect: Young Projects
Location: New York


The Gerken Residence is a 6,000-square-foot renovation to the top two floors and rooftop of the historic Gerken Building in Tribeca. The building, originally the New York National Exchange Bank, was constructed in 1885. A spatial parti is anchored by a monolithic mass serving as the reference for the voids and floating volumes that define the public spaces of the house. This core is clad in custom-pulled plaster panels, a technique developed through combining a centuries-old fabrication technique with contemporary digital design language. A courtyard plunges through the roof, creating an exterior landscape adjacent to the main living spaces of the house.

Honorable Mention


Salt and Pepper House
Architect: KUBE Architecture
Location: Washington, DC (Capitol Hill)
