The 2013 AIA Akron Chapter Design Awards Dinner was held on April 9, 2013 at the University of Akron Martin Center. The Awards Program recognizes the exceptional quality of work produced by firms and individuals in the Akron Chapter. An eight member jury comprised of fellow design, community and industry members reviewed over 50 qualified entries.

TC Architects was recognized for their successful re-design of the resident quarters for Akron General Health System’s main campus Hospital. Our firm turned their well-worn, outdated resident quarters into a retreat for their Doctors. The challenge of the project was that the hospital needed to triple their current locker capacity, as well as provide an eating area, TV lounge, and more areas for computer access, while maintaining the same square footage.

The interior finishes and an innovative layout resulted in a space that efficiently meets the needs of the resident staff, and the goals of Akron General.

Deanne Frank, an employee of TC Architects, was also recognized for her design talents on her senior capstone project. The University of Cincinnati capstone experience is designed to demonstrate excellence in architectural design strategies and applied skills. Deanne’s project was one of two that received student awards out of sixteen entries.
