The home builder received the gold OBIE Award for Best Sales Office Design. The space boasts a modern, inviting design featuring a contemporary white brick wall with eye-catching colors and informative displays to create a comfortable setting for homebuyers.
David Weekley Homes also received two gold OBIE Awards for Architectural Design. The Quimby in Edgehill at Historic Kirkwood took home top honors in the $600,000 to $699,000 category for the two-story home featuring a gourmet kitchen with large island and adjoining family room with an abundance of natural light and a guest suite and covered porch. Recognized in the $400,000 to $499,000 category was The Fostoria in Enclave at Belmont, which features high ceilings and a third-floor owner’s retreat with spa-like bath.
The Quimby Model Home in Edgehill at Historic Kirkwood was also recognized with a gold OBIE for Interior Merchandising. This open-concept home features a contemporary design with touches of vintage charm. Neutral tones are punctuated by pops of rich blue and brass accents to complement the neutral walls, hardwood flooring, a black accent wall and a chevron tile backsplash in the kitchen.
The Terramont in Grand Reserve took home a silver award in Architectural Design in the $800,000 to $899,000 category. The two-story farmhouse-style home is highlighted by a eat-in island in the kitchen and adjoining family room that overlooks a covered patio.
The home builder’s marketing efforts were also recognized with a gold award for Best Audio/Video Promotion for the company’s corporate video. The 3-minute video features customers, homeowners and team members sharing their stories to emphasize the company’s commitment to homebuilding.
