The Pima Canyon Kitchen is an open layout that’s both an integral part of the larger house plan yet a well-defined cooking space where several cooks can play together at once. “Excellent use of materials, great lines, clean and eye-catching,” said the judges, who were taken with the kitchen’s high functionality. Storage cabinets are broken up in interesting ways, a recessed wood ceiling that lends warmth, and the varied palette of materials hews closely to the tones of the desert landscape. The kitchen demonstrates the same indoor-outdoor connections as its master bath, which nabbed a Grand Award.
