For the fourth straight year, the Detroit-based firm was among the winners, competing against 545 entries, resulting in a total of 31 wins since the inception of the Detroit Home Awards.

The Rubin Residence—a partially subterranean 6,000-square-foot hillside home—won an award in the Best Residential Architecture (more than 4,000 square feet) category.

The residence also garnered an award for its living room/great room—comprising a living room, kitchen, dining room, breakfast nook, and television room—that remains open by using furnishings, as opposed to walls, to separate the different spaces. The home additionally received awards in the Deck/Patio/Porch and Conservatory/Sunroom/Screen Room categories, totaling four honors.



The Breck Loft was the other winning project by the firm, and received three awards. The 1,500-square-foot former piano warehouse won for Best Contemporary Interior Design, and received praise for its master suite and 94-square-foot bathroom. McIntosh Poris Associates provides architectural, interior, and urban design services to institutional, commercial, and residential clients.
