DALLAS (PRWEB) July 17, 2019
Faulkner Design Group, a leading national interior architecture and design firm specializing in multifamily housing and senior living environments, recently garnered five 2019 Silver Aurora Awards. Honorees are the top recipients in each category and finalists for the Grand Award, which will be presented at the Aurora Award Ceremony on August 2 in Orlando, Florida, as a highlight of the annual Southeast Building Conference (SEBC), hosted by the Florida Home Builders Association (FHBA). This year’s competition included more than 400 entries from the southeast region of the nation.
Broadstone on Fifth, located in Fort Worth, Texas, captured awards in two categories: Best Multifamily Housing Community (5 Stories or More for Rent) and Residential Community of the Year (Multifamily). Its expansive and thoughtful hotel-inspired amenity collection makes this property stand out as the most lavish lifestyle community in the area. Amenities include an infinity-edge rooftop pool, multiple indoor/outdoor lounges and game rooms, modern co-working business lounge, movie lounge, Uber lounge, and bike shop. Broadstone on Fifth is unchallenged in amenities and service in Fort Worth.
Aura Four44, located in Grapevine, Texas, was awarded Best Multifamily Housing Community (up to 4 Stories For Rent). Designers kept the original industrial integrity of the historic neighborhood by creating a warehouse-inspired polished industrial style. Aura Four44 inspired the city’s recently updated multifamily and mixed-use design standards manual which helps developers understand the city’s vision for the future.
Lumen, located in Tysons, Virginia, was awarded Best On-the-Boards Mixed-Use or Multifamily Community. Scaling 865 feet above sea level, this towering 32-story property represents one of the highest points in the Washington Metropolitan area and one of the tallest buildings in the Commonwealth of Virginia, featuring immaculate rooftop amenities with impeccable views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Washington, D.C. With over 35,000 square feet of recreational space, the building was designed for resort-style hospitality and is seeking LEED Silver certification.
Atria Mount Pleasant, located in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, was awarded Best Service Enriched Senior Community (IL/AL/Memory Care). The design team was challenged to minimize the separation of Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care, while maximizing resident choices and autonomy. All residents and visitors enter through the same reception area, eliminating hierarchy in the community and promoting interaction between residents across all levels of care. Independent and Assisted Living share spaces including the Bistro, Clubroom, Wine Bar, and Wellness Suite, with multiple courtyards accessible through the connecting Grotto.
