PROJECTS: Master Design Awards GOLD Kitchen More Than $100,000 LANDIS CONSTRUCTION, WASHINGTON, D.C., LANDISCONSTRUCTION.COM The owners of an existing 1930s brick colonial wanted a large kitchen with a dining area that would accentuate their vistas of Archibald Glover Park behind the house. Within the first-floor suite of rooms, the design team created one new great room/kitchen that connects with the back deck and woods beyond. This necessitated removing a structural wall and installing a 20-ft. steel beam to create the 400-sq.-ft. eat-in kitchen. The previous family room window was replaced with a double-glazed system, and exterior walls and ceilings were insulated with spray foam. Rigid foam was installed below the new slab to improve energy efficiency and comfort. Different floor elevations were brought to one level in plane with the existing first floor. The new slab is floored in 2 1/4-in. white oak flooring. Interior mouldings and three custom-milled arches were fabricated to match the home's existing woodwork. 24 October 2013 QR ForResidentialPros.com Sam Kittner SILVER: TreHus Builders, Minneapolis, trehus.biz BRONZE: Melton Design Build, Boulder, Colo., meltondesignbuild.com HONORABLE MENTION: Realty Restoration, Austin, Texas, realtyrestoration.com
