MAS Studio honored in the AIA Chicago Small Project Awards

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. You can check online our entry as well as the rest of the submissions.
