2011 NKBA Design Award: Sustainable– Best of Kitchen Views

An Energy-Saving Kitchen

Newton, MA
Designer: Jessica Williamson, AKBD

Design Notes:  When this family of five moved from the city to the suburbs, they wanted to build an eco-friendly new home with an open-plan living space featuring a green kitchen. Environmentally conscientious products fill the kitchen, including LEED-certified cabinetry with a no-VOC finish and no added formaldehyde, a recycled glass backsplash, and a recycled redwood counter. A whole-house lighting system makes saving energy easier, and a PEX plumbing system allowed for the installation of a gray-water recover system. An island dining spot lets the kids snack while Mom and Dad cook on the Energy Star appliances.
Products and Materials:  GE Monogram appliances, Caesarstone quartz countertops, GreenQuest by Crystal cabinets.
