Medium Kitchen: Second Place

A redo by Teass \ Warren Architects is a fresh take on classic style

When Teass \ Warren Architects overhauled a dated 1925 row house in Capitol Hill, the team set out to create stunning modern—and energy-efficient—interiors. At the heart of the plan, a narrow galley kitchen and dining room were combined and a rear extension added, establishing a spacious new kitchen with a large island. Walnut cabinets, black quartzite countertops and a tile floor detail the space, which opens to a deck on the left. 

To meet their sustainability goals, the owners replaced gas appliances with electric ones, including an induction cooktop. Equipped with solar panels, the home has achieved net zero status.
