The RAVE Awards (Residential Architects Vision and Excellence) were created by Mpls.St.Paul Home & Design Magazine in 2004 to recognize and honor achievement in local residential architecture. Every year, a carefully selected jury of editors, professors, and architects uses carefully selected criteria to choose the best work from dozens of submissions to highlight the most outstanding projects in new construction and remodeling. The winning architects are announced at an awards ceremony and their projects are featured in the July issue of Mpls.St.Paul Home & Design Magazine. Year after year, we present the best work to the design community, while also highlighting the importance and benefits of working with an architect. Whether the winning projects are small or large, urban or rural, classic or contemporary, the RAVE Awards are committed to showcasing architectural excellence in the Twin Cities.
