Best Multifamily Mixed-Use Community – Artisan 


Artisan is just two blocks from The Gulf of Mexico and within walking distance of numerous restaurants and entertainment venues. Highlighted by a unique art wall and glass accents, the modern, light-colored exterior features prominent angled rooflines with oversized brackets. Ground-level retailers enjoy a dynamic streetside environment with ample parking. 

"The end result of this infill community is outstanding. The parking is cleverly designed and tucked away, so the focus becomes the communal spaces."- BALA Judges of 2019 Awards


Best Single Family Production Detached Home Up To 2,000 Sq. Ft. – The Binkley


This line of lot-specific infill homes features clean lines and angles and unique window patterns that achieve a modern look. Elevations use contemporary materials like concrete block and metal awnings alongside more traditional cladding, including natural wood siding and textured stucco.

"Judges praised the exterior of the house, its angles, and its unexpected elements .They especially noted the homes fun design details, like funky canopy over the front door." - BALA Judges of 2019 Awards
