Palm Beach House, a mixed-use project, has won awards for the architecture firm
Two Palm Beach projects designed by Dailey Janssen Architects were among 23 awards and honors recently presented by AIA Palm Beach, the Palm Beach County chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
Principal architect Roger Jansen and others from his West Palm Beach-based firm attended the 2023 Design Awards and Honors Gala held Oct. 18 in the Venetian Ballroom at The Breakers.
Dailey Janssen’s projects were the only ones recognized in Palm Beach. Over the years, the company has designed dozens of homes on the island.
Dailey Janssen’s design for a contemporary-style home with Caribbean architectural influences at 149 E. Inlet Drive won the Citation Award for Excellent Residential Design. With large expanses of glazing and an emphasis on outdoor living areas, the house was designed to take advantage of its location at the “corner” of the Atlantic Ocean and the inlet at the northern end of the island.

Dailey Janssen also received an Urban Planning Award of Merit for her design of the Via Flagler by The Breakers mixed-use project on Royal Poinciana Way. With multiple courtyards, the Mediterranean-style project includes retail, office and restaurant space on the ground floor, with six luxury residential units on the second floor.
Dailey Janssen won two other awards – the Award of Merit for Excellent Residential Design for its work on a “hut” in Jupiter; and a Historic Preservation Honor Award for a project at a residence in Winter Park.
