A 'Tiny Tower' designed to fit an awkward plot; an 'Off-Grid Guesthouse' with stunning views of California's coastline; a student village at UC Santa Barbara; and nine other projects were revealed yesterday as the winners of the AIA's 2019 Housing Awards. The recipients, which span four different categories—from single family homes to specialized housing—were selected for demonstrating design excellence and evaluated for being "sustainable, affordable, durable, innovative, socially impactful, meeting clients needs, and addressing the natural and built contexts."
