Kitchen earns big award

Central Otago Mirror - - WANAKA NEWS -

Cre­ative, con­tem­po­rary style sin­gled out Wanaka based de­signer Melanie Craig from the com­pe­ti­tion when she won the most pres­ti­gious award in New Zealand for kitchen de­sign.

Last month Craig was awarded the 2014 Supreme New Zealand De­signer at the pres­ti­gious NKBA de­sign awards, beat­ing 56 other en­tries.

Craig said she en­tered the con­tem­po­rary de­sign know­ing her work had a dif­fer­ence.

The kitchen fea­tured ma­te­ri­als such as subi leather, oak pan­elling, tech­lam and ceasa­s­tone stone sur­faces, and stain­less el­e­ments.

The judges con­grat­u­lated her on her cre­ative ex­e­cu­tion and the mix of glass, Amer­i­can oak, con­crete block, quartz and a com­bi­na­tion of warm and cool colour.

They said the el­e­ment that com­pletely set the kitchen aside was a well de­fined cof­fee sta­tion.

As well as win­ning the Over­all Supreme Award, Melanie Craig De­sign also won the Re­gional Award and Best Use of Colour.

Craig and Gaynor Rodgers have owned the de­sign company for 10 years, work­ing from stu­dios in both Wanaka and Gore.

It was the sec­ond time that the Melanie Craig De­sign team have won the Over­all Supreme award for Kitchen De­sign.
