Design Statement: “Designed and built for a young English/American family who wanted to capture the essence of the quintessential English cottage kitchen, while incorporating elements of the owners’ LA background–light, openness, and contemporary detailing. Handmade green oak timbers define the space while painted units and industrial lights punctuate the room.”

Chosen by: Guest judge and designer John Derian, who said: “A winner–a cool space. It’s efficient, modern, and in keeping with the house’s architecture.”

Project 3  

Office of Architecture | Brooklyn”¨, NY | Brooklyn Row House

Economical Ikea cabinet boxes were combined with custom cabinet doors in satin white and walnut veneered finishes, while rich quartzite countertops complement a simple subway tile backsplash to create an elegant, understated space.”

Chosen by: John Derian, who commented: “Perfect and chic. A nice use of stone and a good mix with art.”

Project 4 

Bates Masi + Architects | Sag Harbor, NY | Elizabeth II

Design Statement: “Located in the heart of a resort town, this home demanded special consideration of the acoustic sense. The research of sound and how it affects our perception of space informed the details, materials, and form of the project. This design approach led to a more meaningful home for the family.”

Chosen by: Julie Carlson, who noted: “There’s something Scandivanian church-like about this space, with the light filtered from above and the use of wood as a design element. This would be a peaceful place to cook and dine.”

Project 5 

General Assembly | Brooklyn, NY | Micro Kitchen, Maximum Space

Design Statement: “Major remodel for a tiny kitchen. We kept the existing kitchen footprint, but incorporated custom millwork and built-in appliances to capture every bit of functional space. Using the lines of the beams and columns, we created built-ins in the nooks and crevices and used color to highlight varying depths of the space.”

Chosen by: John Derian, who called the project a “great usage of a small space–simple and chic. It makes sense with the rest of the apartment.”
