RAVE Awards

RAVE Awards

Every year, Mpls.St.Paul Home & Design Magazine celebrates local Minnesota architects and their exceptional work through the RAVE Awards (Residential Architects Vision and Excellence). Each year, architects submit their best in architectural design in an effort to raise awareness of the many benefits of using a local architect for home projects.

Winners will be published in the August issue of Home & Design

  • RAVE Awards 2017 Winner

    Kitchen

    Kitchen Revival l Albertsson Hansen Architecture | Judges’ Comments: “This kitchen has a ‘wow’ factor—not because it’s fancy but because it speaks to how an older home should be revived—in keeping with the home’s architecture yet giving it modern practicality.” more

    Bath

    Prairie School Style l David Heide Design Studio | Judges’ Comments: “Elegant and timeless,” the judges said, pointing to the detail in the cabinetry design, custom-made lighting, and preserved original art glass windows. more

    Lake Pokegama Boathouse l Albertsson Hansen Architecture | Judges’ Comments: The custom-made door that folds to become an awning and the building’s siting set into a slope to minimize the building from above were two of the features that appealed to the judges. “Even when it’s raining, that would be a peaceful spot to be, with the door open and providing additional shelter as an awning,” one judge commented. more
