Providence, RI DBVW Architects has won AIAri Design Awards for two recently completed projects in Rhode Island. DBVW would like to extend their congratulations and thanks to the clients, contractors, and consultants who made these projects successful! They would also like to congratulate their friend and collaborator, David Odeh, principal of Odeh Engineers, for receiving the 2018 ArchiStar Award. Presented annually by AIAri, the ArchiStar Award recognizes an individual who has made outstanding contributions to architecture but is not an architect.
Edge College Hill, at 169 Canal St. won the Citation Award for Residential Design – A new 15-story micro-loft apartment building that looks out over the highly acclaimed Providence Riverwalk. Each of the 202 furnished apartments includes oversized windows, high-end finishes, nine-foot ceilings, fully equipped kitchens, and fold-down beds that tuck into contemporary cabinetry when not in use.
The new Robert J. Higgins Welcome Center for the University of Rhode Island won the Honor Aared for Academic/Institutional – Designed by DBVW Architects, it provides a warm and welcoming “front door” to the Kingston campus. This new building, which features an open, light-filled reception area where staff can greet visitors and groups can congregate for campus tours, will serve roughly 50,000 visitors each year
