Cost Considerations / Goals: o $80k re-design, remodeling of location, and furniture o $100k kitchen equipment o $20k kitchen remodeling (I guess is minimum we need) o $50k signage and screens (incl. outdoor signage) - While I really like that there is some lounge area with the sofas, the material used/the furniture (in this case the sofas) can take constant drops of food and beverages and need to be wiped several times a day because of that and still need to last for a long time (years! Otherwise we constantly replace)… maybe reducing the sofas in addition to using the right material may help, as sofas are typically expensive. I like the light color, but that may be very difficult with the constant “getting dirty). - Same is true for all furniture, incl. tables. That space will get messy in between. - Where is the kids corner/play area? - would be great to see an area for kids Cristi: Thanks for this initial submission. This really is a great start. I would say you are on point with the brief. Remember to balance airy and warm using natural products, materials and color. Just do not want to feel sterile. Keep up the good work! Thanks Paul Thank you! Looks good. Maybe a bit to many flowers, but like the rest. Thank you!
very beautiful. I do not want a murphy bed though, but overall I like this.
Thank you for the dimensions.
Gorgeous perspective renderings. Would like to have seen at least a plan drawing. None of the submitted files showed the location of the toilet in relation to the other features
Good open design, and some very nice design detailing, such as the glass insets in the top cabinetry. Also very good pantry design. Way too much space allocated for wine bottles!
I really liked your project and really appreciated the interaction we had during the competition. The reason why I didn't choose your design was because it was lacking the material list and the detailed floor plan. Without those, it would be really hard to execute your project within my timeline. Thank you again and best of luck in all your future competitions. _________________________________________ Hi, will you submit a detailed floor plan with the sizes of each cabinet? That is a fundamental part of the deliverables on the project, and necessary to get a quote and execute your design. Please let me know, we would like to finalize the ranking soon, and that is one of the pieces missing on your project. Hi! Thanks for making these updates! The kitchen size feels right and I like the flooring you put it in. Your kitchen layout is really good! Would it be too much to ask you to simulate the cabinets in a light wood color, such as the color you used in the cabinet around the washer/dryer? Same layout though. Do you think it's possible to remove the paneling to the right of the wine cooler and add this cabinet shown in this link to that space? http://www.crateandbarrel.com/bedford-tall-cabinet/s232524 I already own it and would like to see how it fits in that space. I've checked and the wall is definitely big enough for it. Finally, the laundry area is also better, I like the stacked washer dryer, but would like to see a "front shot" image of the area where the window is, do you have it? Thanks so much!! Hi! So exciting to see your design! I’ve summarized our comment below. Thanks for giving us a chance to review it before your final submission. I think the kitchen is a little longer than what you have designed. Are you sure you used the full 14 feet? It feels there’s about 2 feet missing on the end by the kitchen door, am I wrong? I’ve added a new picture with a new angle so you can have an idea. Note that there is a small pantry by the door. I like where you put the wine cooler, but I’d prefer to have a little more seating at the bar. Would you remove the cabinet to the left of the wine cooler so we can have one or two more seats? The backsplash an flooring are pretty but feel too modern for our house. Would you be able to use something like a acqua subway tile on the backsplash and dark wood on the floor? Feel free to experiment, but I’d prefer something that doesn’t look so “pixelized”. The laundry room space is beautiful, but I’m not sure it fits in the space I have there. The wall where you stacked the washer and dryer (great call) is not that big. Hopefully you will have other views that will allow us to better visualize the space. What do you think of centralizing the kitchen sink on the counter? Would you try that to see if looks more symmetrical? Finally, the fridge we ended up buying is only 24” deep, same width and model. Can you also update that? Finally, let me know if there's any information you need from me to finalize your design. Thanks!
Your design is beautiful! We really like the style of all the items you selected and also appreciate that you gave us the opportunity to review your first design and provide feedback before your final submission. We only wish that you had provided more details about the items in your design such as the window curtains, the rug and the wall art because these items are so key to the overall appearance of the room.
Thanks for your effort, however, I think you overused the wall shelf units from Ikea. Also, not enough color.
Hello! Let me start off by saying that I really love your design. I think that you captured many of the elements that I am looking for! I had never considered a living wall before but it is a great touch! One concern is the lenght of the wall that the TV is placed on - it is a large wall and I am concerned that there will be too much wood along that wall. Would there be a way to move the living wall from the fireplace wall and do something with the living wall (perhaps 2 smaller living wall features on either side of the TV)? Just a suggestion. :)
Very well done with additional elevations/perspective views that made the difference. You met each and everyone of my criteria. The glass door cabinet is above and beyond as a show piece with lighting. The glass over the wood backsplash achieves task and ambient lighting at the same time. The cabinets are beautiful and are in keeping with my personal style. Finally, a cabinet color that compliments the black and white flooring. Colors are perfection.
