The Bobb residence in Bethany Beach, designed by Scott Edmonston, AIA, of SEA Studio Architects, received a 2016 Citation Award for design excellence by the Delaware chapter of the America Institute of Architects. A ceremony was held April 17 in Wilmington. Tim and Tyler Tribbitt of Hugh H. Hickman Builders were also in attendance to accept this prestigious award.
The biannual award acknowledges projects that clearly demonstrate a level of design that exemplifies superior achievements. An award-winning project demonstrates a high level of design resolution and/or advances the contemporary understanding of design by proposing a new approach to the development of architectural form.
In honoring the house, the independent, five-member jury noted the project's "straightforward solution to a complex (and large) problem, the simple, consistent detailing throughout and the careful, considerate architectural design." They celebrated the home's "contemporary, minimalist detailing and beautiful craftsmanship."
