The friend’s apartment that’s simply too small to accommodate the dinner or party they’re hosting. Here’s the scene: Normally polite people throw each other elbows. Wall-to-wall guests idle awkwardly in the bedroom or hallway. If you’re really, really unlucky, you might even experience dreaded accidental butt-to-butt contact (the horror!).
Design Jim’s Kitchen, sponsored by GD Cucine, is our latest foray into design-build competitions. We’re inviting designers to submit proposals to turn Jim’s kitchen into a fun, functional space for this young Manhattanite. The basics of the brief (and registration) can be found over on the competition page. Registration ends on July 2nd, only a month from now. The winner will take a $5,000 prize, and a second and third place finalist will each be awarded $1,000. All entrants, regardless of winnings, will be eligible for a 30% discount at GD Cucine, which is a steep discount even for designers.
In the meantime, we’ve rounded up a few glorious–if diminutive–kitchens to get your wheels turning. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions about the competition or brief.
