Fresno architect Arthur Dyson received two awards from the California Council of the Society of American Architects during a ceremony in Palm Springs last month.

Dyson, who studied under famed designer Frank Lloyd Wright and is principal of Arthur Dyson Architects in Fresno, received an Award of Honor for the Charles and Lela Hilton residence in Panama City, Florida.

The 9,500-square-foot house nestled in the sand dunes appeared on HGTV’s “Extreme Homes” show in October.

Dyson also received an Award of Excellence for the Grant and Camilla Bishop residence in St. George, Utah. The award of excellence is the highest award possible.

The 5,300-square-foot home has a sloped roof line, curved walls and expansive glass showing views of the desert, red cliffs and lava rock which is characteristic of Dyson’s free-flowing style.

The home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, five patios, a guest casita, a swimming pool and outdoor fire pits.

Twelve awards were given out during the society’s annual Professional Design Awards Banquet. Entries came from as far as China, New York, and Pennsylvania.
