BOSTON, MA — (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Arclinea Boston and Feinmann, Inc. were presented with the “Best in Show” award at the first annual Luxury Living Awards in Boston on April 6, for their design of a spectacular kitchen in Arlington, Massachusetts, referred to as the “Arlington Chef’s Dream Kitchen.”
“The Arclinea/Feinmann kitchen was chosen as the Best in Show winner because it has been so beautifully conceived as an innovative, yet functional living space,” says John Kenney, publisher of HomeWorks Sourcebook, which organized the Luxury Living Awards. “From among many wonderful entries, our jury chose the Arlington Chef’s Dream Kitchen because it is both visually striking and marvelously functional while seamlessly integrating architecture, design, and finishing elements.”
The Arlington kitchen was also named the Platinum Award winner in the kitchen category at the Luxury Living Awards, which celebrate New England’s most beautiful living spaces and the talented design professionals who created them. A distinguished panel of jurors drawn from the home design, real estate, and media fields recognized Arclinea Boston and Feinmann, Inc. at an elegant reception and dinner, held at Boston’s World Trade Center in conjunction with Build Boston’s new Residential Design 2005 show, sponsored by the Boston Society of Architects.
Arclinea Boston architect Mercedes Farrando consulted with the Arlington home’s owners on the dramatic re-imagining of their kitchen. “The clients are a chef and her husband. They wanted to make a bold, lively statement in their kitchen with color and materials, but they also needed it to be a thoroughly ergonomic and functional space,” she says.
The kitchen was fastidiously laid-out to meet the requirements of a chef. Designed to allow comfortable movement from storage to preparation, cooking, and cleaning stations, the room features two islands and a dramatic wall of tall units in highly reflective and durable blue solid ray. (The color represents something special to the client: it’s the color of the Cordon Bleu in Paris, where she studied.) Deep drawers provide easy access to pots and pans, and the storage units are coupled with a ladder to allow easy access to items used less frequently.
“This kitchen truly represents the spirit of Arclinea. It’s a standard for the serious chef and the product of exquisite design,” says Arclinea Boston owner Philip Guarino. “We were proud to work with Feinmann, Inc. in realizing this ambitious project.”
