We love to see architects and designers take on kitchen remodels: Here are five worth admiring from the newest members of the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory.
Above: This kitchen by Portland, OR-based Howells Architecture + Design is a new take on the classic English scullery. The tiles are Opal Blue tile from Heath Ceramics. Read about architect Michael Howells' approach in Rehab Diaries: An Oregon Kitchen with a Dose of Downton Abbey. Photo by Anna M. Campbell.
Above: Small multidisciplinary firm Hackett Holland Ltd offers architecture, interior, and landscape design services from its office in London. This minimal kitchen is an excellent example of the firm's aesthetic range; see an equally beautiful but stylistically opposite project in Off the Grid: A Modern Farm, Sans Electricity.

Above: Architect Amy Alper had six weeks to transform this Sonoma galley kitchen in time for the summer harvest. You'll be impressed by Alper's feat when you see the before photos in Reader Rehab: A Sonoma Kitchen Remodel with a Six-Week Deadline. Photo by Kathryn Clark.
Above: LA-based interior designers DISC Interiors emphasize warmth, comfort, and craftsmanship in their designs. We especially like their kitchen design for a loft in Sonoma (see Loft Living in Sonoma County). To see another project by DISC, check out A Garage Turned Garden Room in LA. Photo by David John.
