The distinguished Gold award for Interior Kitchen design this year goes to Portfolio for creating a seamless culinary workspace and social gathering point.
When creating this elegant, Old-World look, the designers answered the homeowners’ requests for special zones for cooking, baking and entertaining in seamless ways. The baking area features a hidden mixer on a lift, for instance, while the hospitality side includes an integrated beverage center, glassware cubbies and refrigerators hidden behind decorative panels and drawers. The judges were most impressed by the armoire that’s actually a secret passageway into a spacious pantry.
What makes these designs even more noteworthy, is the fact that Porfolio Kitchen and Home swept the entire category, following their Gold award with two other designs, making them the undisputed design firm for kitchens in the Kansas City metro.
