A home designed by students at Lethbridge College has won a provincial award.

The Emberly, designed by Interior Design Technology student Lina Wiebe for Ashcroft Master Builder, earned an Alberta BILD award for top single-family home under $300,000.

The home was created as part of first-ever Ashcroft Design Challenge.

Wiebe designed the floor plan, while Jada Kot brought it to life through 3D animation. She says it was an incredible honour to have my design be nominated for the BILD awards. “The Emberly is the first home I have ever designed and having it come so far is a testament to the wonderful support Lethbridge College gives its students.”

The home design was then built by the company in Garry Station on the west side, with Wiebe working for Ashcroft as a paid intern.

Interior Design Technology instructor, Cherie Reitzel says this BILD award not only affects Wiebe’s life, “but has an affect on the life of every Interior Design Technology student today and in the future.”

Ashcroft, meanwhile is already preparing to build a second Emberly home, based off the success of the initial design.

The second year of the Ashcroft Design Challenge is now underway. Students will pitch their designs to Ashcroft in April 2020.
