Gulf Coast American Institute of Architects
Halflants + Pichette Architects were awarded a record of five of the twelve AIA design awards at the biannual Gulf Coast AIA competition, including two Awards of Excellence. A jury of well-established architects out of North Carolina were asked to review the 75 submissions. Twenty-one design firms from our three neighboring counties submitted designs completed within the past two years. For the second time, Halflants + Pichette alone secured almost half of the awards. Four residential projects completed as design-build ventures by Halflants + Pichette together with the unbuilt design of an art center were recognized at the award ceremony. All winning projects are on display at the Center for Architecture on Orange Avenue.
