The winners of the 2013 national AIA Housing design awards include four high-end private residential projects in Washington, California, Colorado, and Texas, an affordable housing project in Bronx, New York, and a 1,650-student housing development in Seattle, Washington.

Via Verde is a 222-unit affordable living development built on a former brownfield site in Bronx, New York. Designed by Dattner Architects and Grimshaw Architects, the project combines high-rise, mid-rise and townhouse residential structures unified by a common color scheme that includes bright red, orange, and yellow highlights.

Bohlin Cywinski Jackson's contribution to the single-family housing category is the latest in a long line of thoughtfully modern luxury dwellings incorporating the firm's signature moves – copious glazing, a rigorous and logical timber structure, and living spaces that blend indoor and outdoor spaces. The Halls Ridge Knoll Guest House, located in San Francisco, California is a simple shed-roof structure sited among oaks on a sloping lot, surrounded by a generous deck, adjacent to a large swimming pool.

A complete list of the winners includes:
