Designer Annika Rowson of Rowson Kitchens was asked to create a bold, dark and unique kitchen, incorporating innovative materials, but to not detract from or obstruct the view.

The space needed to be functional for a family that entertains frequently.

A custom rangehood was designed to not only make a statement and enhance the high stud of the space, but to also offer storage in the way of open shelving.

The G-shaped kitchen has ample benching, a durable work surface and a drinks station.

The design won the Kitchen Distinction Award $60k-$80k, at the NKBA 2019 Excellence in Design awards.

Judges described the work as an architecturally gorgeous space. “A well-designed kitchen, that is visually stunning, but most importantly it has been designed in a way that allows the architectural elements of the home to shine. The material selection is clever and the detailing, including the rangehood, is very good. A black kitchen, where texture is used to elevate and give light.”
