WASHINGTON, DC—A Connecticut bridge house and an affordable-housing project for LGBT seniors in Philadelphia are among the 10 winners of the American Institute of Architects' annual housing design awards.

Other winners in the 2015 Housing Awards include a rural homestead in Tennessee and a hotel-turned-residence for formerly homeless families and youth aging out of foster care in San Francisco.

The Bridge House in Kent, CT, designed by Joeb Moore & Partners, won in the one/two family custom category.
