Residential & Hospitality Design Awards

Submissions Open in August Design Awards Gallery

Welcome to the AIA Atlanta Residential & Hospitality Design Awards (RHDA)! Join us as we celebrate exemplary homes, restaurants, and hotels designed by architects registered in Georgia.

The program invites projects anywhere in the world, with previous submissions spanning from North Carolina’s Nantahala National Forest to the mountains of Mexico.

RHDA recognizes projects that establish a standard of excellence, educate the public on the value of good design, and highlight architects as problem-solvers. In addition to receiving industry recognition, submitting work can generate new business and inspire continued excellence in the profession.
