A collaborative venture between AIA Minnesota and the Star Tribune, the Home of the Month program seeks to support a growing residential architecture community and educate the public regarding the benefits and value an architect brings to the building process; the diverse housing design choices open to homeowners; and the many possibilities of project scope and price range in which architects work with homeowner clients.

Each year since 2002, 12 residential projects have been selected from among a pool of submissions to be featured once a month in the Star Tribune’s Sunday Homes section. The featured projects are evaluated by a jury of peers and selected according to how well a project encourages a sense of place; how the finished work represents the homeowner’s vision of home; and how it responds to its surrounding context.

2015 Home of the Month Selections

On April 21, a panel of architects gathered to select the 2014-2015 Home of the Month projects. The panel included Andrew Braman-Wanek, AIA, principal at Ginkgo House Architecture (Madison, WI); Tim Dufault, AIA, president/CEO at Cuningham Group Architecture; Martha Yunker, AIA, principal at Yunker Associates Architecture; and Kim Palmer, editor at the Star Tribune.
