Osmosis Architecture Wins National Award | Left Hand Valley Courier
The next time you wander into osmosis art and architecture, look for a shiny new statue that resembles an Oscar. This is the Gold Award that architect Anne Postle, founder of osmosis art and architecture, picked up in February at the National Home Builder’s Association International Builders Show.
The National Sales and Marketing Awards (or Nationals as they are known in the building industry) are given by the National Sales and Marketing Council to recognize excellence in sales, marketing and design. Osmosis won the Gold Award in the “One of a Kind Custom Home” category. The award winning design was for Panorama Point, a home osmosis designed in Louisville.
Taking about a year in the design phase and about 18 months to build, Postle described it as a very contemporary home which blends the interior and exterior. With panoramic views and rooms that completely open to the outside, the home also serves as a showcase for the owners’ extensive art collection.
Postle found out in December that their entry had been selected as a finalist. When they were presented with the award this February, Postle said, “We were thrilled. We’ve been a finalist before, but never won the Gold Award.”
In addition to the prestige, Postle said that the award is great PR. Panorama Point will be featured in a national magazine for the home-building industry and, said Postle, “It gives us credibility on a national level.”
This award comes at a good time for the firm as well. Postle said that osmosis had weathered the economic storm well and she was grateful to be fairly busy right now. “The custom market has been slower, but it’s starting to come back. So this is a good time to win this award.”
