Division1 Architects was created in 1994, as a provocative response to both a failing economy and what co-founder Ali Reza Honarkar viewed as the stagnant design culture in the Washington metropolitan area. Today, the firm’s portfolio is far-reaching, touching single-family and multi-unit residential buildings, commercial spaces ranging from offices to retail shops, restaurants and nightclubs, as well as branding and apparel. It maintains offices in Washington, DC and New York City, NY.
Last week, members of the Vectorworks team traveled to Washington, D.C., for the AIA 2012 National Convention and Design Expo. We gave demonstrations at our booth of Vectorworks Architect, as well as some great new offerings: CadFaster, SimTread, Vectorworks Cloud Services, and AR-works.

Division1 Architects has received a 2012 residential architect Design Award (RADA) for its vision behind The Lacey, a high-end, 26-unit condominium building it designed for Washington, D.C.’s thriving U Street corridor. The project received a RADA Merit Award in the Multifamily Housing category and was one of 36 winning designs honored from among nearly 800 entries to this annual design competition.
