One of the most satisfying rewards for an architectural photographer lies in helping our clients expose their design skills to their professional peers and to the world at large. Whenever they succeed with recognition and accolades for their work, we, in some small way, succeed too.
At the recent AIA East Bay’s 2012 Exceptional Residential: Bay Area Regional Design Awards, Leddy Maytum Stacy’s Merritt Crossing project was recognized with an Honor Award. The high-density, affordable apartments service low income seniors in Oakland’s Chinatown neighborhood. The sustainable elements incorporated into the design have kept the project on target to achieve a LEED Platinum rating.
Also garnering some well deserved recognition this week were Auerbach Glasow French who received two Awards of Merit at the Illuminating Engineering Society’s 2012 Illumination Design Awards. This wares is one of the highest honors for the profession presented every year to projects demonstrating “ingenuity and originality in lighting design”.
