Willkommen Wins Honor Award at Design Pittsburgh


GBBN’s design of Willkommen on Vine continues to garner accolades. The project won an Honor Award at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Pittsburgh’s annual awards show, Design Pittsburgh.

“There is a timeless quality to the façade that utilizes new technologies and brick-coursing research to create an elegant interpretation of a classic design element: the bay window,” the jury commented. “The articulation of the thickened windows in the facade improves access to daylight without compromising privacy for residents.”

“This project is a showcase of the positive impact excellent design can have on affordable housing,” the jury added.

Willkommen on Vine has also won recognitions from AIA Cincinnati, AIA Ohio, and the Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU). Learn more about Willkommen by visiting our case study here, or by visiting our clients’ for the project, 3CDC and Model Group.
