Davida Rodriguez updated a 1980s-era Silver Spring kitchen into a sleek, modern space.

Best in Show: Sculptural Style

Small Kitchen—Third Place

In the mid-century modern home of a commercial architect in Silver Spring, Davida Rodriguez transformed a 1980s kitchen that had been a pass-through space into a vibrant central area where the owners and their guests can congregate. She began by removing a wall to create an open plan that would make the kitchen easily accessible from the family room, dining area, and backyard. Her design also borrowed space from an adjacent bath for a pantry that optimizes storage.

Drywall soffits in an accent color and waterfall countertops made of quartz convey a sculptural sensibility that’s “more reminiscent of art than of function,” says Rodriguez. Dark-stained cabinetry adds warmth and the two-tiered island with double-sided cabinets conceals part of the prep area. Sleek, double-sided frosted-glass cabinets hanging from rods maintain a sense of openness between the living room and kitchen. Stainless-steel appliances and a glass-tile backsplash lend the kitchen a clean, reflective quality.
