Winners in two categories were announced – an Overall Winner and a People’s Choice Winner. The Overall Winner was a 2,000-sq.-ft. renovation project called “South Beach Miami Minimal” by Esteban Cruces and Lisette Aragon of ALBERTO/ESTEBAN.

The project features a fully integrated, 30-in. refrigerator and fully integrated 18-in. freezer, a 24-in. wine storage system, an electric cooktop and a MasterChef oven and microwave – all from MIele.
The grand prize is an all-expenses-paid trip to Eurocucina 2014 (April 8 - 13) in Milan, along with a visit to Miele’s global headquarters in Gütersloh, Germany.
