Blaine County Residence by James McLaughlin Wins AIA Merit Award for Best Use of Idaho Wood

Every other year, AIA Idaho celebrates the best buildings and spaces—and the people behind them—with some of the most prestigious awards in the industry. Last fall, the American Institute of Architects Idaho announced the winners of the 2018 Design Awards at a ceremony held at the Inn at 500 Capitol downtown Boise. The program recognized outstanding achievements in architecture and design of Idaho individuals and organizations. The jury selected projects that demonstrated exceptional design and superior work of architecture.

The AIA Idaho Best Use of Idaho Wood award is given by AIA Idaho in partnership with Idaho Forest Products Commission. It is intended to showcase the use of Idaho wood products so as to educate the profession and the industry about the use of Idaho wood in exceptional design practice. The winning award highlights some of Idaho’s best resource and advertises the beauty and integrity of wood construction.

The Blaine County Residence, Blaine County, Idaho, designed by James McLaughlin of McLaughlin & Associates Architects received an award for Best Use of Idaho Wood.
