CotY New Category Features Architectural Design

NARI is excited to announce the addition of Residential Architectural Design categories to this year’s CotY Awards.  

Residential architectural design refers to the process of creating and planning the layout, structure, and aesthetics of homes and residential buildings. It involves designing living spaces that are functional, aesthetically pleasing, and suited to the needs and preferences of the clients. 

In residential architectural design, it’s important to not only create visually appealing spaces but also to address practical considerations and ensure that the building meets the needs of its occupants while adhering to building regulations and environmental responsibility.  

Here are some aspects you may want to think about when creating your entry:

Space Planning: 

  • Consider the flow of movement within the home, the relationships between different spaces, and how each room serves its purpose.  
  • Functionality: A well-designed residential space should cater to the needs and lifestyles of the clients. Carefully consider the activities that will take place in each area and design accordingly.  
  • Aesthetics: Residential architecture strongly emphasizes aesthetics and creates visually appealing living spaces.  
  • Materials and Finishes: Selecting appropriate materials and finishes is essential for the home's structural integrity and visual appeal. Consider durability, maintenance, and environmental impact when choosing materials.  
  • Customization: Work closely with the homeowners to understand their preferences and create personalized spaces.
