For years, Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove has conducted a design contest and added the winning entries to their online Kitchen Design Gallery. This cumulative trove comprises awe-inspiring kitchens, in every conceivable style, from around the world. Here’s an interest-piquing sample of past award recipients deemed the top of their class.
TRADITIONAL WITH A PINCH OF PANACHE
To create this timeless kitchen (1st Place, Traditional), a team led by Atlanta designer Matthew Quinn reimagined a stale space, making it more conducive to today’s lifestyle. Offering an updated interpretation of traditional style, his design packs plenty of function, too. Separate zones for cooking and cleanup accommodate a couple who enjoys working side by side. The Wolf range and brass hood serve as a focal point, while a Sub-Zero refrigerator rests demurely behind blue-painted panels that match the cabinets.
Illinois-based designer Mick De Giulio conjured a modern farmhouse design (2nd Place, Transitional) for a pair of serious home chefs. His vision includes numerous bespoke details that add character and contrast within the large, airy space. White, horizontally paneled walls provide a quiet yet textural backdrop. De Giulio set the Wolf rangetop within a farmhouse-style table, custom-made from reclaimed pine. Two stainless-steel refrigerator/freezers with glass doors from Sub-Zero project a utilitarian vibe. Freestanding and hanging étagères, crafted from hot-rolled steel, augment the look.
A couple with young children wanted a minimalist kitchen (2nd Place, Contemporary) that would meet their family’s needs. Australian designer Kirstyn Lloyd delivered. A lengthy island defines the galley space; it combines a marble-clad prep zone with a raised, oak-topped seating area, the perfect breakfast and homework spot. Blackened timber stretches dramatically across the back wall, concealing storage and Sub-Zero refrigeration (with the exception of the glass-front wine storage). A marble-wrapped hood crowning the central Wolf cooktop commands attention; sleek, black-glass double ovens, on the other hand, blend in.
