In the wake of winning the top award for the Ace Hotel in the hospitality category of the Los Angeles Business Council Architectural Awards earlier this month, Santa Monica-based Killefer Flammang Architects (KFA) garnered five more awards at the recent Pacific Coast Builders Conference.
This time, the Ace Hotel snagged a Grand Award in the Best Renovated or Restored Project division while other KFA projects were saluted in the Mixed-Use, Affordable Housing and Senior Housing Community categories.
“The accolades which the Ace Hotel has won in various competitions is attributable to an outstanding collaboration with GREC Partners, Chicago, and Los Angeles-based Morley Builders ,” said Wade Killefer KFA design principal, whose firm was executive architect
Other KFA award winners were The Villas at Gower, Hollywood, and the New Genesis, in downtown Los Angeles, which won in the Affordable category (60 or more units per acre).
In the Mixed-Use sector two sister buildings – Quonset Court and Lincoln Studios in Santa Monica — were singled out for a Merit Award and in the Senior Housing Community category, Linda Vista Phase 1, East Los Angeles, also won a Merit Award.
One of the leading firms in multi-family housing and adaptive reuse, KFA has more than 4300 units in the pipeline, reported Killefer.
