For Remodeling and Qualified Remodeler magazines to recognize two of our San Diego kitchen remodels as some of the nation's best is a tremendous honor."

Details on each award-winning project:


Arclinea San Diego's contemporary kitchen design for an 1898 Historic Victorian, located in the downtown San Diego neighborhood of Sherman Heights, has won the "Grand Award" in the category "Old House Renovation," in the "2008 Remodeling Design Awards" sponsored by Remodeling magazine.

The publication received 340 entries in this year's program. A six-member jury-composed of architects and architectural designers-selected 21 entries for recognition, including eight Grand Awards.

Arclinea San Diego's all-stainless steel kitchen design for a 1950s California ranch, located in the San Diego neighborhood of Mission Hills, has won the "Gold Award" in the category "Kitchens $50k - $100k" in the "29th Annual Qualified Remodeler Master Design Awards" presented by Qualified Remodeler magazine.

The publication received 435 entries in its 2008 program. A panel of five experts selected 23 projects for Gold awards, across 22 categories. Arclinea San Diego's winning project will be featured in the September 2008 issue of Qualified Remodeler and on the publication's website (

Juror Comments:

Arclinea San Diego's design connected the kitchen with the living and dining areas, taking advantage of the home's unobstructed views of San Diego Bay. With only 140 total square feet, careful attention was paid to every design and functional detail to make the galley kitchen feel and perform as a much larger space. Jurors called the modern design, with its all stainless steel cabinetry and single-piece stainless steel countertops, an "exciting transformation" and praised it for being "well thought-out and well executed."
