Sub-Zero and Wolf 2013-2014 Kitchen Design Contest: 1st Place Contemporary Kitchen. This is one of the most unusual kitchens featured in the Kitchen Gallery. It is ingenious, visionary, even a little bit magical. This kitchen makes one wonder what it would be like to cook, entertain, and spend family time in this uniquely contemporary setting. Why is it so different? It&rsquos the centerpiece of a residence that functions not only as a living space for architect Dov Secter and his young family, but also his show home and office, in the River Heights neighborhood of Winnipeg, Manitoba. So the kitchen has to serve many needs. It has to have a decidedly modern and minimalistic aesthetic, to showcase Dov&rsquos sense of design. It needs to provide cooking and entertaining space for a large extended family. And it requires quickly accessible storage that is out of sight when clients come through.
