Sustainable Achievement

In 2010, Cunningham | Quill Architects set out to “Sustainably Move Forward.” Looking back at the year, we accomplished exactly that.

CharityWorks GreenHouse  |  McLean, VA
Our first award of the year was the National Association of Home Builders’ Project of the Year for the CharityWorks GreenHouse. In an application process that went beyond design to look at every sustainable aspect of the project, the CharityWorks GreenHouse excelled from energy modeling to LEED points (The CharityWorks GreenHouse was one of the first LEED Platinum projects in the Mid-Atlantic region). The house also received another Project of the Year honor from the National Capital Region Chapter of the USGBC (United States Green Building Council). The project was also featured in a documentary called GREENHOUSE: DREAM IT. BUILD IT. LIVE IT.
Davis Place  |  Arlington, VA


Our green design Davis Place project in Arlington, VA was also recognized, in addition to our Smart Growth Mount Rainier Mixed-Use Town Center Development Plan for the City of Mount Rainier, MD.
Mother & Child  |  Washington, DC
Even with all our achievements in green building, we continued to focus primarily on good design. A great design is the driving force for all our projects, whether a single family residence or a large institutional project. In recognition of this practice, we received a total of 6 state and local AIA Awards across the Mid-Atlantic Region.
