Designer Paul Bentham was honored for his designs for the third year in a row. Bentham posted the largest number of wins for the firm, with a total of 3, including an award for a large contemporary master bathroom in Bethesda.
Jennifer Gilmer, CKD, worked with Amy Gardner, FAIA, of Gardner Mohr Architects, to design a kitchen for a new home in Rehoboth that was selected as the 1st Place, Medium Kitchen. This kitchen blends the outdoors with the interior with large expanses of glass leading to a porch and deck. Jennifer stated “we were able to create a warm contemporary kitchen that fulfilled their sustainably-minded agenda with a modern farmhouse aesthetic.”
Sarah Turner, CKBD, won awards in both the Small Kitchen and Medium Kitchen categories. Her Medium Kitchen award was for a circa 1900 rowhouse in Georgetown, where she worked with Christian Zapatka, AIA , of Christian Zapatka Architects, to bring the space into the twenty-first century. In her small kitchen winner, Turner transformed a 100 square foot space with integrated appliances and larger cabinetry to give the homeowner more storage and a cohesive space to entertain
