Category 1 Platinum Winner: Gegg Design & Cabinetry

Why the judges love it: This is such a zen and calm space. The wood and stone material choices really shine, and we love the dish storage. A very smart design.

A 1970s kitchen was in desperate need of an update. The home, previously owned by an architect, featured unique design features throughout, but the kitchen was tired and outdated. Gegg Design & Cabinetry tackled the renovation keeping the remodel within the original space except for the removal of a pantry and closet wall. The goal of the new kitchen was to respect the original design but address some functional issues. The original island was not wide enough for the range, so the designer moved the range to what was the pantry/closet wall. A new integrated refrigerator was moved toward an end to open the workspace around the new range area. With ample counter space, the designer added a cabinet for dish storage that features a custom pair of open slatted doors along the window wall. The linoleum floor was removed, which exposed the original concrete floor. The concrete was renewed, polished and sealed. The cabinets are a linear vertical grain rift cut white oak. For the countertops, the owners selected Calacatta Nero marble countertops for the kitchen and honed black soapstone for the bar area, which is an extension of the kitchen. The area behind the range features a 2/3 high backsplash with stone shelf for additional storage. The new kitchen meshes well with the existing home with all the features and comforts for today’s lifestyle.
