BSB Design Brings Home the Gold (Twice!) From NAHB’s 2018 IBS

BSB Design has returned home from NAHB’s International Builders’ Show with two Gold Awards! The Custom Home on Lake Geneva received The Best One of a Kind Home from the Nationals Awards and Winchester at Winning Farm received the Best Attached Home on The Boards for the 55+ Housing Awards.


The Custom home on Lake Geneva was a challenging yet rewarding project to design. The existing footprint on the land had to stay, which required us to design with that in mind. The end product is nothing short of unique, with large floor to ceiling windows facing Lake Geneva, grass on the roof above the front door and the contemporary yet warm feel of the interiors.

Winchester at Winning Farm has just completed the planning stage, and is set to begin construction in 2018.

Nationals’ Silver Award Winners are the top vote recipients in each category and are the finalists for the Gold Award. Gold Awards in each category were presented as part of the International Builders’ Show, the awards ceremony on January 10th at Hyatt Regency Orlando.

“The Nationals are the most prestigious awards of their kind, setting the benchmark for innovations in new home design, marketing and sales,” said Meredith Oliver, chairperson of the Nationals. “NAHB’s commitment to recognizing originality, imagination and success has been exemplified by its award winners since the competition’s inception.”

Started in 1982 as the Institute of Residential Marketing, The Nationals award program continues to recognize superior new home sales and marketing achievements.  With 57 categories across various disciplines of the new home industry, the awards honor excellence in product and community design, advertising, marketing and sales achievements by individuals and sales teams.

The Best of 55+ Housing Awards are the industry’s only national awards program honoring excellence in building design, marketing and lifestyles in housing for the mature adult. The awards also honor individual successes by Builder or Associate 55+ Council members. The industry and the media view the awards as a showcase for quality housing, innovation and emerging trends that appeal to the mature demographic.
