Named Winner of Boston Magazine’s Home & Garden Dream Kitchen Contest, Remodeling Magazine and Kitchen & Bath Business Design Awards

BOSTON, Mass. — A kitchen designed by Arclinea Boston has been named winner of Boston Magazine’s Home & Garden 2007 Dream Kitchen Awards in the contemporary category. The Cambridge space was recognized for offering all of the accouterments of the professional kitchen (“ample storage,” “professional-quality cooking setup,” “high-performance appliances and fixtures,” “two islands [that] are a chef’s delight”) as well as a smart and flexible modern design seamlessly integrated into a traditional, historic home.

Writer Christie Matheson sums it up: “In this kitchen that is decidedly contemporary…wisely placed personal and traditional elements make it feel like home.”

Another Arclinea Boston-designed kitchen, this one a renovated galley in a Back Bay townhouse, has just been selected as a Merit award winner by Remodeling magazine.

At the same time, three very different Arclinea Boston kitchens are featured on the covers of the trade magazines Kitchen + Bath Business and Qualified Remodeler, as well as the consumer title Signature Kitchens & Baths.

Arclinea Boston“Recognition of these five distinct projects demonstrates Arclinea’s commitment to more than just highly functional kitchens incorporating cutting-edge technology and exquisite materials,” says Arclinea Boston president Philip Guarino. “The Arclinea Boston difference is that every kitchen design is 100% customized to accomplish individual homeowner requirements and to perfectly complement the unique architecture of each home.”

The cover of Kitchen & Bath Business magazine’s 2007 Design Awards issue is dedicated to a Merit award-winning Arclinea Boston kitchen in Chestnut Hill. Writer Sallie Moffat says, “What began as an innocent facelift for a traditional, ’80s-looking space transformed into an ambitious, multifunctional design concept that resulted in a completely renovated, ultra-modern home.”

Another Arclinea Boston-designed kitchen, this one in Weston, was selected for the cover of Qualified Remodeler’s 2007 Kitchen and Bath Trends issue. The magazine calls the room “sleek, bright, and out-of-sight.”

Finally, Signature Kitchens & Baths features two Arclinea Boston kitchens in its summer issue. The kitchen featured on the cover, in a renovated 1950s home in Lincoln, is acknowledged for combining “a unique blend of dark and light materials that reflect tone and light within the house,” and providing “all the conveniences of a professional kitchen.” The Weston kitchen mentioned above is also featured in the magazine, noted for its emphasis on ergonomics and an elegant, linear design.
