2012 Aurora Awards

August 4, 2012 (Orlando, FL.) – Home building professionals from the 12-state southeast region received the coveted Aurora Awards® during an industry gala held in conjunction with the 2012 Southeast Building Conference (SEBC). This event honored the Southeast’s best in new-home construction and design.  The Aurora Awards® are considered by many, the Grammys® of the home building industry and symbolize tremendous achievement, honor and distinction.  Tampa-based Windstar Homes earned Three (3) prestigious Aurora Awards® this year for Best Kitchen, Best Master Bath and Best Swimming Pool & Landscape Design.

The Aurora Awards® presented to Windstar Homes this year were for a quaint 4000 sf waterfront residence designed by Tarpon Springs based Architect Ed Hoffman, principal of Hoffman Architects, P.A.  The home’s interiors were designed by Jana Williams, Lead Designer at Windstar Design Group.  The home’s design incorporates a Florida Cracker vernacular, featuring virtually every amenity one might expect in a home of this caliber.  From a top-of-the line appliance package and mouth-watering gourmet kitchen; to a lavish master suite featuring a free-standing bathtub; to a built-in bookshelf-clad study.  In addition, the rear of the home has an enormous amount of windows and French doors allowing the majority of the rooms in the home to have views of Tampa Bay.According to David Lesser, who with partner Bobby Gross, own Windstar Homes, “Being honored with these awards for this home is extra special; one because this is the smallest home we’ve built in more than a decade and two; this project was a collaboration with an outside architect.  These awards help memorialize the joint efforts between the many talented people who worked together in concert to create this very special home for our very special client.”
