Competition :: 2011/2012 NKBA Student Design Competition

A Challenge to Remodel a Federal Row House

The National Kitchen & Bath Association is proud to release the 2011/2012 NKBA Student Design Competition sponsored by Sub-Zero/Wolf and Waypoint Living Spaces. The Association from students receives each year more than 400 entries across North America wanting to be recognized as outstanding in kitchen and/or bath design by their peers and industry professionals. The current competition asks aspiring designers to renovate a 19th century Federal Style Row House according to the needs of their clients Michael and Jolene Matthews and Thor, an Alaskan Malamute. The Matthews family desires a transitional style with accessories and colors to reflect the old world charm of the row house.
