July 26, 2011 (Washington, D.C.) – In conjunction with its 60th annual convention held at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the American Institute of Building Design (AIBD) announced the winners of this year’s American Residential Design Awards®.

Since 1950, the American Institute of Building Design (AIBD), the nationally recognized association of Professional Building Designers, has provided its members professional and educational resources, and has developed nationwide design standards and a code of ethics for the building design profession. Today, the AIBD represents professional and associate members in 49 states and throughout Canada and abroad. Its chartered societies are active in their respective legislative arenas and work to promote public awareness of the building design profession.

This year, Florida-based Windstar Homes was honored with two (2) awards for Best Conceptual Design for its Hawthorn and Rosewood models, both part of the company’s recently unveiled “Arbor Collection”. With these awards to its credit, Windstar Homes has now become a real driving force and design leader in the luxury homebuilding industry on a national level. Windstar is the only company in the thirty on (31) year history of the Nationals® to win the Best Custom Home of the Year Award, three (3) years in a row; no other company in the industry has ever achieved this.

“Validation such as this means so much to our team. These special honors and awards from the design community continues to feed our voracious appetite for innovation and passion for creating the finest residences in our markets,” explains David Lesser, who along with Bobby Gross, are the principals and owners of Windstar Homes and Windstar Design Group.
