2013 NKBA Kitchen Design Competition – Large Kitchen

First Place & Best Kitchen



Best Kitchen & 1st Place- Large Kitchen ‘Raise a Glass’ by Wendy F. Johnson, CKD, CBD This kitchen translates into some serious cooking and baking for her, and a computer center and seven-stool raised bar area for him. With the focal point being the glass wall and views of a private golf course beyond, a large center island forms the heart of the space, open to an elaborate wall of cooking, refrigeration and storage.
