Magnificent Metal Monday – Metal Featured In AIA Housing Award

Here And Now
Canyon Drive in Los Angeles, designed by Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects

Among the winners of this year’s AIA 2023 Housing Awards is Canyon Drive by Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects [LOHA]. Congratulations to METALCON exhibitor, ATAS International, for their metal work on this project. As seen in Architect Magazine, “The American Institute of Architects has revealed the winners of its 2023 Housing Awards, honoring 10 projects emblematic of ‘the best in housing design for new construction, renovations and restorations,‘ according to an AIA press release.

This year’s class of winners was selected from a pool of submissions spread across eight categories: one- and two-family custom residences; one- and two-family production homes; multifamily housing; specialized housing; excellence in affordable housing; mixed-use community connection; community-engaged design; and universal dwelling design.

Canyon Drive – Metal Work Completed by ATAS International

Selected in the multifamily category, Canyon Drive was designed with the city’s tight housing market and the 2005 Small Lot Subdivision Ordinance in mind. The project creatively explores the outer limits of a small-footprint typology. Beginning with the maximum allowable envelope, the design tilts exterior walls at different angles away from the lot lines, creating five unique, light-filled residences that assume the form of expanded A-frames. The project deploys a simple and curved panelized system for its exterior wood frame, deftly providing privacy from neighbors, and mirrors itself internally with elegant, white-ribbed rooms illuminated by glazed curtain walls. A cedar-clad first-floor exterior housing a two-car garage warms the structure. To maintain density, the design swaps traditional yards for rooftop decks with views of LA. The results are single-family homes that are cohesive but maintain their individuality. (Source: Architect Magazine)
