ArCHdes™ is the Design Excellence Selection awards program at Architects Creating Homes.  This yearly event can help you and your architectural firm shine as an award winning firm.  If your project actually looks like a home, that’s acceptable!  ArCH celebrates design quality in multiple styles and functional categories.  The outstanding value presented by this minimal fee underscores ArCH’s commitment to helping Improve Residential Architecture.


Next ArCHdes™ design awards program: 2024.

This ArCHstore product is your entry fee for a single project design award submittal.  You must pay an entry fee for each award submittal.

VALUE: A remarkable value at only $49.  ArCH views this ArCHdes™ program (Design Excellence Selection) as a celebration of great design, Not a competition.  If you are a Licensed Architect, and you are a member of ArCH, you may participate.  If you are Not yet an ArCHmember, you must first join ArCH to participate.  When you pay for each ArCHdes™ entry, you merely receive a downloadable version PDF of the ArCHdes™ program, nothing more.  This acknowledges payment of your entry fee.  It shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg to help you receive the recognition you and your firm deserve for your great design work.  Join ArCH and start becoming acknowledged as one of the best there is in this field.

PUBLIC EXPOSURE & ADVERTISING: And ArCH doesn’t stop there.  Those projects of yours that receive awards will not only be announced on the ArCHdes™ website page for the year of that award (which is to remain on the ArCHwebsite for as long as the ArCHwebsite exists), a link to the year’s winners will also be promoted on social media of ArCH’s choosing.  To date, the ArCHFacebook post linking to the ArCHwebsite year’s award winners is “boosted”, to around 10,000+/- people having similar interests, which amounts to advertising your firm’s winning entry at no additional cost to you.

YOUR PAYMENT DEADLINE: May 8, 2024(which is 10 days prior to the submittal due date) (you may also pre-pay for your submittal anytime during the current year).
