Local architecture firm Houser Walker Architecture was recognized by AIA Atlanta as a Silver Medal Firm at the group's "Build Something Great" ceremony last week. If the firm sounds familiar, it might be because founding partner Greg Walker, who also serves as the AIA Georgia President, was gracious enough to grant us a candid interview back in June. Awarded no more than once a year, the medal recognizes a firm that is "striving and achieving over a sustained period, the highest quality in collaborative and excellent design; distinction in client service; distinction to internal and staff engagement in many areas of the profession and community." And Houser Walker has more than a few projects that simply look pretty slick.

Since its founding in 2004, Houser Walker has designed a range of projects in the metro including the DeKalb County Central Senior Center, a proposal for Toco Hills and Palmetto Libraries. They're currently working on projects ranging from a new children's treehouse play structure for Chastain Park to a reimagining of the Peachtree Summit office building located adjacent to the Civic Center MARTA station, the firm tells Curbed.

In winning the award, Houser Walker joins a list of Atlanta's architectural elite who have previously bagged the hardware, including tvsdesign, Mack Scogin Merrill Elam and Perkins+Will.
