Open Contemporary Kitchen by Tim Scott

NKBA's 2014 Design Competition Winner: Best Kitchen

Co-Designer: Erica Westeroth, CKD, NCIDQ and Sheena Hammond

A family of four, that loves to often entertain, desired a modern, yet warm kitchen that featured two work zones, good storage options for point-of-use-essentials, and other features such as a six-burner cooktop, ovens, large refrigerator, recycling bins, and a small TV. The main design challenge of this space was the fact that the designer had to work from an architectural plan for a yet-to-be constructed new home; one with an exterior architecture featuring a mix of '60s material and style. In order to cater to the clients' wish list, the designer relocated the planned entrance to the mud room and the walk-in-pantry to the back wall of the kitchen. In addition, the windows were slightly relocated and the previously planned window style was also modified to blend in with the design. The kitchen is now essentially separated into two galley sections for preparation/cooking and clean-up/storage. The tall units are placed along the back wall, between the newly located pocket doors, partially recessed into the strapped-out and wood-clad wall. The central double-sided island topped with striated, chunky back-beveled marble brings the wow factor to the space! Demi-high oven units next to the central cooktop, create a vertical median line and open space for wall art.
