Arclinea Boston Wins 2008 Chrysalis Award for Best Kitchen Remodel

| From

BOSTON, Mass., June 23 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- A North Kingstown, Rhode Island kitchen designed by Arclinea Boston has won a Chrysalis Award for Best Kitchen Remodel in the Northeastern United States. "To win an award in this highly competitive category is quite an achievement," says Ken Kanline, director of the Chrysalis Awards, which were founded in 1994 to recognize the nation's best work in seventeen general categories of residential remodeling.

Chrysalis Award for Best Kitchen RemodelThis year's winners were selected from more than 536 entries, which were judged by a team of design editors and writers. Entries were judged on overall design, creative use of space and materials, and the degree to which the project enhanced the original structure.

The award-winning Arclinea Boston project posed some interesting challenges. The original kitchen was dated and awkward, with large, bulky cabinetry hanging over a central island, blocking views from the kitchen's work area to its dining space, reducing functionality, and preventing the flow of natural light. The homeowners-a couple with several young children-wanted a more inviting and family-friendly space within the footprint of the existing kitchen that would offer room for comfortable cooking, foot traffic, better sightlines, and additional storage.

Working with Boston architecture firm Ruhl Walker Architects, Arclinea crafted an elegant and inviting kitchen of warm gray oak cabinetry, granite countertops, and an array of integrated appliances. By introducing deep drawers and pull-out pantries, the Arclinea design provides more storage than ever before-even following the removal of the large cabinetry unit that had hung over the island. The new island, wrapped in bright white granite, is an elegant and functional centerpiece that offers additional storage space, a prep sink and built-in disposal. The award-winning kitchen is carefully designed to serve multiple needs, accommodating both serious cooking and casual gathering.

"We're thrilled to share this Chrysalis Award with the talented team at Ruhl Walker Architects," says Arclinea Boston president Philip Guarino. "They worked closely with us to craft an exceptional new kitchen that is no bigger than the previous one, but with a meticulously reconsidered redesign, takes far better advantage of available square footage, resulting in a vastly improved room."
