Sub-Zero and Wolf Announce 2015-2016 Kitchen Design Contest Finalists

June 12, 2017

Sub-Zero and Wolf recently announced the 25 finalists of the 2015-2016 Kitchen Design Contest (KDC). A panel of judges selected the finalists during a four-day review and deliberation of the entries at the Sub-Zero and Wolf headquarters in Madison, Wisc.

Eligibility for the contest required that all design and construction be fully completed within the contest period of Jan. 1, 2015 through Dec. 31, 2016. Indoor kitchen designs had to include at least one full-size, built-in or integrated Sub-Zero refrigeration unit and at least one Wolf primary cooking appliance including ranges, range tops, ovens and cooktops. Outdoor kitchen designs were required to include at least one Wolf grill in addition to one Sub-Zero refrigeration unit.

“I honestly get a real charge out of the entire process, from evaluating the entries and seeing what is out there in the kitchen design community, to deliberating with the other judges,” said E.J. Meade of Boulder, Colo.-based Arch11 Inc. “The contest has been around for more than 20 years and offers a great opportunity for designers to have a ‘feather in their cap’ for their work.”

All finalists will receive a trip for two to attend the Winners’ Summit and Gala, held Sept. 24 through 27 at Hotel del Coronado in San Diego. The contest’s 10 winners will be announced at the gala honoring their achievements in design on September 25 in the following categories: first place contemporary, transitional and traditional; second place contemporary, transitional and traditional; first-time entry; small spaces kitchen; outdoor kitchen.

“As I reviewed the entries, I was looking for things like good quality of light, good circulation of space and a balance of materials and layout in terms of work stations,” said first-time contest judge Stacy Eisenmann of Albany, Calif.-based Eisenmann Architecture.
