Congrats to Phoenix’s artHAUS! It was announced that the 25-unit collection of urban dwellings has won a 2017 Builder’s Choice & Custom Home Design Grand Award, recognizing outstanding and innovative residential design across the United States. The Builder’s Choice jury panel selected artHAUS for the national Grand Award in a multifamily and mixed-use category based on the design’s simple, bold forms and its configuration of townhomes, lofts and flats ranging from 560 to 1,900 square feet, according to the press release.
“We’re grateful to the jurors for this honor, and to the awards program organizers at Builder magazine and HanleyWood,” says Jason Boyer, architect and principal with Phoenix-based Studio Ma which designed and developed the housing community, in a press release. “With artHAUS, we hope to raise the bar for contemporary residential design. Our focus is always on making Phoenix a better place to live, but the national recognition for artHAUS is very welcome. We’re really proud of it.”
artHAUS is found within walking distance of popular attractions like the Phoenix Art Museum, Hance Park, and Arizona State University’s downtown campus and has made waves for its eco-friendly advancements, as all units meet strict criteria for Energy Star and LEED for Homes certification. The Phoenix building features a rooftop solar array that offsets 100 percent of the HOA power demand, and electric vehicle charging stations are available to residents in an enclosed parking garage.
The homes are close to 70 percent sold.
