Scottsdale-based architect David Hovey Jr. was recently honored with two international architecture awards.

Mr. Hovey Jr., the president and principal architect of the luxury real estate development firm Optima, was internationally recognized with two “prestigious awards” honoring his proprietary Optima DCHGlobal modular building system including the 2019 Architecture MasterPrize and the 2019 American Architecture Award, according to a press release.

His Arizona Courtyard House, a private residence in Paradise Valley, won the 2019 Architecture MasterPrize for Architectural Design/Residential Architecture.

Completed in 2017, the home was built in less than five months using the Optima DCHGlobal system that he patented, demonstrating the flexibility of the system to create a home of linear volumes.

Whale Bay House, a private residence in Kerikeri, New Zealand, he also designed, took home the 2019 American Architecture Award in the private homes category, which is among the organization’s top honors.
