Balzer+Teakwood Kitchen Wins in Global Contest
A kitchen design by Teakwood Builders designer Eva Andersen and Brett Balzer of Balzer+Tuck Architecture was honored this week with the Northeast Regional Award in the 2013-2014 Sub-Zero and Wolf Kitchen Design Contest.
The project involved the dismantling and relocation of an 1880’s English threshing barn on the property. The original barn was reconstructed into a new residence and detached two garage nestled into an existing meadow behind a stand of mature trees.
The farmhouse kitchen features a large apron sink, custom white cabinetry, a dark counter top and wooden windows.
More than 1,700 kitchens from around the world were submitted to the panel of judges, and the Balzer – Teakwood kitchen entry was one of 53 North American and International first-place winners.
Brett and Eva attended the Best of the Best Winners’ Summit & Gala this week, where as a part of the prizes, Eva got to participate in a cattle drive in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The panel of judges included New York-based designer Jamie Drake; master cabinet maker Doug Durbin; founding partner of Arch11 E.J. Meade; Architect Cristina Menezes; kitchen and bath designer Matthew Quinn; owner and principal designer at Design First Interiors Friedemann Weinhardt; and The Breakfast Room, Ltd. owner Vasi Ypsilantis.
