Second Place: Brilliant Mod Kitchen
Category: Small Kitchen (Less than 250 sq. ft.)
JDR Design Team: Senior Interior Designer Gabriel Sepulveda, Interior Designer Carissa Buchner

Making a definitive Mid-Century Modern statement with its pairing of warm wood and glossy white cabinetry, this kitchen gleams with mod style. Originally, the 60-year-old home’s kitchen had a small workspace, cramped entry and an unsightly column placed in the center which impacted the overall flow. The new design incorporates multilevel countertops, expansive space with plenty of natural light and a unique Sputnik chandelier. The bright new kitchen now feels dramatically more open and inviting after maximizing natural light and strategically unifying adjacent spaces for gathering and entertaining.

Third Place – Luxurious Contemporary Craftsman
Large Kitchen (Greater than 250 sq. ft.)
JDR Design Team: Senior Interior Designers Tatiana Machado-Rosas and Gabriel Sepulveda, Residential Designer Arnold Garza

This stunning kitchen was a key element in the first-place winning mountain view retreat. Bold architecture, luxurious materials, and sculptural lighting create an artistry that harmonizes with the natural surroundings of green hills, blue skies, and open space. Meticulous craftsmanship is evident in the blackened steel framing of the custom cabinetry and intricate tile mosaics. The extraordinary hood is a custom design crafted from stainless steel, polished nickel, and blackened steel. The design carefully balances human scale with functionality and multiple large appliances in an expansive space with awe-inspiring views.
