AIA Pittsburgh Design Award

Fairmont

Architecture, Certificate of Merit, 2006

“This is a very smart project. It employs many sound traditional urban strategies while managing to keep the design fresh and modern. Nice detailing in spite of a very tight budget. Kept it simple with correct proportions. The architects achieved a design that accomplished much more than its budget might have implied. The use of geometry is very purposeful in breaking up and scaling the buildings. It is a restrained but thoughtful response to the precedent set across the street without being slavishly historic. Simple gestures in the rhythm and the palette.”
