They were selected by Architecture Magazine as one of nine firms to represent their state in its issue on "the Arizona School". In addition, they won the Southern Arizona AIA Home of the Year for three consecutive years, and were honored to accept an invitation from the Eames foundation in Los Angeles to speak about their work and the internationally renowned Case Study Houses. The National Concrete and Masonry Association recognized the firm by presenting its Award of Excellence for the Garcia Residence in 2005 and the Downing Residence in 2006. An installation commissioned by the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art for the exhibition "The Border Film Project / El Proyecto Fronterizo Fotografico" September 16, 2006 - January 28, 2007 was designed by Ibarra Rosano Design Architects, and they were recently awarded the Benjamin Moore HUE Award for Residential Exteriors.

This is the basic premise of their work, and they are committed to the belief in the power of space to nurture and inspire.
