If you weren’t already convinced MSM Architects and Helix Architecture + Design are killer design firms, the 2011 AIA KC Awards provide fresh evidence. Their entries won two of the three top awards; an Honor Award in Design Excellence went to MSM’s Posty Cards project and to Helix’s Missouri Bank in Brookside. Helix also won a Citation Award for the O.H. Dean Building Renovation and an Honor Award in Allied Arts & Craftsmanship for the MO Bank artwork by Archie Scott Gobber.
Erick and Lance Jesse of Posty Cards won one of two of the first ever Design Hero Awards for their visionary patronage.
I am very happy to say that in all these, their photographer didn’t screw it up for them!
