With a long-running 20-year history, Sub-Zero & Wolf’s Kitchen Design Contest recognises the best in kitchen design from across the world. And if last year’s Australian standouts are anything to go by, we should dominate again in 2018.
July 9th, 2018
Australian design is world class. It’s a phrase often thrown around but not always necessarily backed up – until you consider the incredible amount of Australian projects represented in last year’s Sub-Zero & Wolf Kitchen Design Contest.
Maybe there’s something in the water down here. Or maybe it’s possible to achieve outstanding design by having just the right combination of luxury products paired with willing clients.
Whatever the case may be, last year’s program saw five very different, but equally striking Australian projects make it to the finals of the Kitchen Design Contest, with three of them taking out a win.
One of those winners was Fergus Scott, of Fergus Scott Architects, who was awarded the 1st Place Global Winner in the Contemporary category on his project The Farm. When commenting on the win, Fergus shares, “It’s a fantastic affirmation for us as designers and architects, but it’s also great for our clients. They’ve been very supportive and they’ll be excited for us because they’ve come along for the ride as well. This award gives us the confidence to design on a high level and to try and work as hard as we can to make every job we do better than the one before.”
Another one of those winners was Chenchow Little with its Darling Point Apartment. The clever and compact project received an award for Global Winner First Time Entrant. “I think that ultimately, what impressed the KDC judges is that Darling Point is very unexpected. But with our practice, we try to give each client a high level of craftsmanship and customisation, so they have something that is their own, and enhances their quality of life,’ says Tony Chenchow, co-director of the practice.
The final winner was Mim Design with DRF Residence. This modern kitchen was awarded 1st Place Global Winner in the Transitional category and beautifully integrates Sub-Zero & Wolf’s product into a decidedly petite kitchen.
Entering Sub-Zero & Wolf’s Kitchen Design Contest is a simple and straightforward process, with the potential to elevate your business out to a global audience. Not only do you get to put your project on the international stage, the 29 professional finalists will receive: $2,000 and an all-expenses-paid trip for two to the Winners’ Summit and Gala held in the USA (US Autumn 2019).
