2009 NKBA Design Awards: Open Plan Kitchens - Honorable Mention, Best Sustainable Kitchen

Design Notes: This environmentally friendly design flows from the main kitchen to the outdoor terrace with built-in grill, creating an ideal gathering space. Tucking a cleanup sink around the corner, eliminating wall cabinets, and integrating appliances behind white high-gloss polyester panels or pocket doors helped preserve the harbor view. Green products included low-VOC paint and cabinets made from zero-emission plywood with a reconstituted wenge wood finish.
Products and Materials: Travertine flooring, CaesarStone Blizzard White quartz countertops, backsplashes and integral sink; Miele cooktop and double wall oven; Dornbracht faucet.
