2021 AIA Award of Excellence
On Thursday, December 2, 2021 The AIA Bucks County Chapter held their annual awards celebration at the Ram in Perkasie, PA. Raphael Architects’ Creekside Confluence received the AIA Bucks County 2021 Award of Excellence.
When announcing the award, Joel Levinson, Philadelphia Architect and Author who served as juror, described the project as “a sophisticated, well thought-out addition to a lovely, late-18th century stone farmhouse. The addition is filled with an abundance of daylight that streams through expansive windows that also unite the house with the lovely surrounding landscape. The sensitively proportioned windows add repose to the design. The original house and the addition appear to be knitted together with great skill. Not only were the architectural components of the project visually connected with the surrounding landscape, but also various strategies were employed to use the forces and properties of the natural world to reduce energy consumption. Figuratively speaking, this addition, in and of itself, seems to breath fresh air, which must be a joy to the homeowners.”
