NKBA 2010 Design Competition - Best Sustainable Kitchen Winner
Concrete floors, exposed beams and ductwork are the stand-out components that set this space apart from the average residential kitchen. Warm tones in the cabinetry, quartz countertop, and custom Mahogany wood bar top serve their purpose in functionality, but also as a softening hue to the palette of this expansive kitchen. A design that is honest to the integrity of the structure and equally the client's principles is this stunning result. Some of the green structural techniques include insulated concrete formed walls, insulated concrete floors with radiant heating, a Tulikivi radiant wood-burning fireplace and domestic hot water recirculation. Internally, some of the kitchen selections include FSC certified cabinetry and Cambria solid surface quartz countertops.
