Light Traditional Kitchen by Jessica Williamson
2011 NKBA Design Competition - Best Sustainable Kitchen
A young family of five made a transition from city townhouse to larger suburban home. As their decision became one of building a new house, they wanted to ensure that the kitchen was a focal point to their open plan living space. The clients also desired not only a green kitchen, but an eco-friendly approach in construction from foundation to roof.
Some of the sustainable design solutions that the designer incorporated, with the clients' approval are: LEED Certified Cabinetry with No VOC finish and no added formaldehyde cabinetry, a recycled glass backsplash, all GE Monogram Energy Star-rated appliances, a whole house lighting system, and recycled Redwood countertops. A PEX Plumbing system, which allows for the addition of a grey water recovery system.
