NKBA's 2014 Design Competition Winner: Large Kitchen - First Place
Co-Designer: Debbie Larson
If there is a kitchen that's truly fitting for a house with strong industrial aesthetics - this would be it! Functionally, the kitchen is ideal for quick family meals or large social gatherings - warm, organic and sturdy materials enrich the integrity of the design. The work zone consists of an outer island that anchors the kitchen space, providing transition, storage and seating. The dish and glass storage is supplemented by 42" full height base cabinets at the outer island. The outer island counter overhang, supported by a custom steel post, is designed to resemble the ceiling trusses. What's more, the round hood stack, above the top of the upper cabinets creates the feel of a building detail. Refrigerator drawers in the island make for a tight prep triangle, and strategically placed matching cabinetry in the pantry conceals the room¿s open shelving. Other special features such as polished concrete flooring, stone and wood walls, exposed trusses and vaulted ceiling add to the grandeur of this kitchen, perfectly crafted for a modern-day feast!
