Centerbrook has received more than 350 national and regional awards for design excellence since its founding in 1975. Awards have been given to a variety of projects that range from highly crafted private residences and furniture to evocative institutional complexes and fully implemented city plans. In 1998, Centerbrook received the national AIA Firm Award, the highest honor that the American Institute of Architects confers on a firm.

These awards have, for the past three decades, consistently recognized Centerbrook's work as offering a memorable sense of place, being in harmony with its surroundings, and showing concern for its occupants.
