2011 AIAVT Excellence in Architecture Design Awards

the 2011 Call for Entries

LineSync Architecture of Wilmington

Cattail Cottage, Lake Bomoseen, Hubbarton

Honor Award

The jury described this as a simple, imaginative solution within the constraints of the existing small house plan. There were few opportunities given the site and setting. The end result is quite wonderful - one main gesture, attention to detail and sustainable. The original house plan was maximized and improved by this intervention.

Centerline Architects & Planners, PC of Bennington

Cricket Hill Barn at Bennington College

Honor Award

The jury praised the consistent and confident design throughout and nice attention to detail. The design resisted the temptation toward unnecessary embellishment.

TruexCullins Architecture and Interior Design of Burlington

Private Residence in Jericho

Merit Award

The jury liked well-proportioned and organized floor plan and good lighting. The project is pleasant with flowing spaces, comfortable interiors and good connection to the landscape.

McLeod Kredell Architects of Middlebury

Nature Preserve House, Middlebury

Merit Award

The jury commended the center building, fireplace element, and the circular stair used for airflow. The green roof is a nice solution with well designed scuppers. The residence sits well in landscape.

Birdseye Design of Richmond

Private Residence,  Shelburne

Merit Award

The jury praised the nicely detailed building with its good proportions and excellent use of materials. The project demonstrates textural material use and excellent craftsmanship. It is integrated well with the outdoors, bringing the landscape into its envelope.

Gossens Bachman Architects of Montpelier

Gile Hill, Hanover, New Hampshire

Honorable Citation

The Jury described this project as nicely scaled with a varied exterior and excellent use of materials, resulting in an elevation with rhythm and nice composition. The complex is anchored at its corners by large volumes and is inventive in form and its use of color. It’s playful with warm interior spaces within a constrained project development.

Birdseye Design of Richmond

Musician's Retreat in Waitsfield

Honorable Citation

The jury commended this adaptive reuse project with its simple floor plan and natural palette. The project shows a restrained hand and careful intervention, cautiously handled and well thought out in keeping with the spirit of the original.

Duncan Wisniewski Architecture of Burlington

Hickory Street in Rutland

Honorable Citation for  Public Housing – Urban Planning

The jury said this project added organization to development. There is a sense of hierarchy with primary and secondary avenue spaces and outdoor spaces. It created a more successful urban scale solution with smaller structures and simpler shapes at human scale.
