Clarke’s Annual Design Contest Winners: Traditional Kitchens

kitchen design

Six spectacular kitchens were selected from more than 70 entries at Clarke’s Annual Designer Appreciation Night this past fall. This year’s event was hosted at 7 Tide, the new Sub-Zero & Wolf showroom and test kitchen in Boston’s Seaport.

We’ll be sharing photos and a bit of information on each of the winning kitchens. Here are the winners in the Traditional Division.

1st Place – Jan Gleysteen, Jan Gleysteen Architects

The homeowners wanted to bring a taste of their northern European heritage to their new home in Boston. While they preferred a clean, functional and modern design, they also gravitated toward the warmth of New England architecture. This kitchen blends all sensibilities beautifully.

2nd Place – Mark Haddad, Haddad Hakansson Design Studio

The team at Haddad Hakansson (Susan Cracraft, Louie Kerbici along with Mark Haddad) took a limited amount of space and transformed it into a light-filled room with smart storage that blended with the homeowner’s antique pieces.

Haddad Hakansson Design Studio’s traditional kitchen design took second place.
