A kitchen in a Cambridge home has won the best Character Kitchen Design Award at the National 2023 NKBA Excellence in Design Awards.
The kitchen designed by DesignMarked Kitchens also won the Waikato Chapter Recognition Kitchen award announced last Friday.
It was created for a homeowner with German heritage, and a grandfather who owned a bakery – so the wish list included a benchtop suitable for rolling out doughs, set to the height of the baker, and a large island to maximises benchtop space with seating.
DesignMarked borrowed space from the living area, and the size of the island increased to provide more working space
The judges said the kitchen was a successful modern twist on mid-century design.
