Introducing Western Living’s 2023 Designers of the Year Award Winners
The Nota Bene makers help raise more than $30,000 for a scholarship in the late architect's name.
It was a sad day in the Western Living office when we heard about the passing of Okanagan-based architect Nick Bevanda. We had worked with Bevanda in covering several of his projects: he won a Designers of the Year award in 2013 and we also wrote about the amazing work he did at Terravista Vineyards, and later at Oliver’s Black Hills Estate Winery.And now, in a fitting tribute, Black Hills has repaid some of the love by turning last Saturday’s Nota Bene release party into a chance to bid on live auction items, the benefits of which will help start a scholarship in support of top Penticton high school graduates and aspiring young architects in the South Okanagan. The event raised $21,430—and this was added to private donations of $8,000 from HDR|CEI Architecture (Bevanda’s former firm) and $1,500 from Penticton’s Greyback Construction.”We are simply blown away by the generosity of everyone who attended the party. It was truly awe-inspiring,” said Black Hills president Glenn Fawcett.
