St. Rita Place & Cascia Center receives 2023 AIA Pennsylvania Honor Award

Project News
November 2023

CBP Architects was delighted to receive a 2023 AIA Pennsylvania Honor Award for St. Rita Place & Cascia Center, a new five-story, mixed-use building that serves the adjacent St. Rita of Cascia Church and Shrine and provides 46 one-bedroom residences for low-income seniors.

The jury noted “This project would be a good project if it was just housing, but it is affordable housing for seniors and it’s really stunning in the quality of space, materiality, and simplicity of the form. In addition to being a good building by itself it starts a dialogue with this Church nearby and creates a civic plaza that seems to be quite successful in framing a new public realm.”

The AIA Pennsylvania Architectural Excellence Design Awards celebrate the exemplary design achievements of members and the impact of architecture. From 110 eligible submissions, the jurors whittled their review to 39 finalists and selected 18 projects by 13 Pennsylvania firms to receive a 2023 Design Award.
