Honorable Mention - Large Kitchen

Form + Function For a family of four, an outdated, inefficient kitchen in Bethesda had become a drag. They contacted Hedy Shashaani of Jack Rosen Custom Kitchens to answer a wish list that included the relocation of appliances and storage for better work flow; separate prep and cleaning zones; comfortable circulation; and an island that would serve as a buffet for entertaining.

Shashaani first relocated the cooktop from the island to the wall, creating a focal point for the kitchen and improving ventilation. She altered traffic patterns by installing two islands—one for prep and one, with a wine cooler and stools, for entertaining. A walk-in pantry has been replaced by a wall of cabinetry that houses appliances and storage. A furniture-like hutch with smoked-glass door panels stores glassware and dishes.
