MAS Studio has been honored for its work on the Elemental Kitchen project in Chicago. The project received a Citation of Merit in the 2015 AIA Chicago Small Projects Awards. Below is the text about the project from the awards:
“When a client requested a modern kitchen that could also be part of the residence’s living spaces, this architect responded with a careful treatment of glass, stainless steel, marble and LED lighting. ‘The quality of light here is great and very well-detailed,’ remarked a juror. Back-painted glass is used across all vertical surfaces to conceal drawers and appliances, and carefully placed LEDs create a frameless, continuous surface that lends softness to the overall aesthetic. ‘They created this sense of seamlessness,’ noted a juror. ‘It’s minimalistic and flawlessly executed.'”
Thank you very much to AIA Chicago and the Small Projects Awards jurors for the recognition.
