“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.”

“This is the best kitchen design contest in the industry. The projects are from all over the world. You meet great people and you see great design. Being exposed to other people’s work is inspiring and the entire event is just a lot of fun. To be a part of something this big is terrific.”

“Winning the KDC catapulted my business, truly. From that moment, because of Sub-Zero’s PR, and my presence on their website, it’s a new paradigm completely.”

“For me, this is a landmark moment to boost our career and continue to push forward, not only creating inspiring spaces, but to influence the community.”

"Entering the Sub-Zero and Wolf Kitchen Design Contest has changed my career in ways I never imagined, substantially and with momentum. The first time I placed as a Regional Winner was for the design of my own kitchen. This came with a certain personal and professional validation that encouraged me to apply again. The second Regional Winner award triggered inquiries to develop designs for those outside my circle, increasing my portfolio. The publicity and incoming work that followed a third award aided me in launching my architecture practice, and a fourth award delivered a stream of clients interested in investing in design. Entering the KDC has helped me to create an office that supports a team of seven with a client base that appreciates our design approach.”

“Winning the Kitchen Design Contest boosted my confidence and exposed me to a much broader market. I was suddenly designing kitchens for clients all around the country and internationally. The recognition also caught the attention of kitchen and bath product manufacturers and this win was the starting point of my product licensing division. All in all, this win and my relationship with Sub-Zero and Wolf since has been one of the most important game changers in my career.”
