H/S receives recognition for Historic Renovation

H/S received an award of merit for their project; The Historic Renovation to the Hammond Train Depot at the 2008 AIA New Orleans honor awards banquet.

In order to recognize excellence in Architecture, AIA New Orleans held its annual Design Awards program on Thursday, March 6, 2008. Each year, AIA New Orleans Design Awards program accomplishes three simple, yet invaluable, goals: celebrate the best of this region’s architecture; recognize achievement in a broad range of architectural work; and inform the public of the breadth and value of architectural practice.

AIA New Orleans is proud to honor the architects, clients, and consultants who work together to improve the built environment. The theme of this year’s awards was ‘Architecture Matters.’ AIA New Orleans aims to continue raising awareness of why architecture matters. It is clear that it takes the efforts of not only great designers and their teams, but that of great civic leaders, business leaders, and a myriad of individuals working in harmony to achieve important works of architecture. When done well, the result is a sustainable, beautiful, working, healthy built environment that serves the people and planet in which we live.

This year, eight winners were selected from over 70 entries.
