The American Institute of Building Design (AIBD) has unveiled the winners of the 2009 American Residential Design Awards (ARDA). Recipients were selected by AIBD Certified Professional and Professional members from a pool of more than 100 proposed and finished projects.

Awards were given in nine categories: custom luxury, model homes, published design, sustainable, multifamily, community development, working drawings, renovation, and unbuilt design. Competition judges chose the winner of the 2009 ARDA Best in Show award from the overall field of entries, while attendees of the AIBD's National Convention, held July 8–11 in Portland, Ore., voted for the winner of the Designers' Choice award. All winning designs will be featured in the fall 2009 edition of Design Lines, the AIBD's member magazine.
