RLC Architects (RLC), widely known for the firm’s superior architectural design and planning services in South Florida, recently announced the firm was the recipient of multiple accolades at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2016 Palm Beach Annual Design & Honor Awards Banquet.

RLC Architects (RLC), widely known for the firm’s superior architectural design and planning services in South Florida, recently announced the firm was the recipient of “The Award of Merit for Unbuilt Residential” at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2016 Palm Beach Annual Design & Honor Awards Banquet.

“The Award of Merit for Unbuilt Residential” recognizes the design of RLC’s APOK Townhouse Development Project, located in Boca Raton, Florida. The 90-unit townhome design is part of an effort to revitalize the area as “residential” permitted use within an industrial/research zoning section, with the goal of attracting the “millennia” generation work force seeking affordable housing in the area.    

“The jury appreciated the rare inclusion of a double volume within a project of this type and budget. The articulation and variation developed within the elevations permits a feeling of individual units having some individual character – something that is difficult to achieve without the variation becoming arbitrary.”

Other consultants involved in the design include RGD Consulting Engineers (RGD) for Professional MEP-FP as well as Structural Engineering Services.

RLC Architects received multiple other accolades at the 2016 Design and Honor Awards Banquet including:

  • Award of Merit for Unbuilt Non-Residential
  • Design Excellence Award of Merit for Non-Residential Project
  • John Stetson, FAIA Award to RLC Principal, Bruce W. Retzsch, AIA
