National Award: Bluestem Remodeling, St. Louis Park, MN

While the previous kitchen might have been eye-catching and cool when it was first built in 1965, it had become dated and worn and did not serve the needs of the current homeowner. To honor the home’s Mid-Century Modern roots yet deliver on the desire for better storage, circulation and function, the team repurposed an odd, underused sitting area and added a long, function-packed island. The bar was also reworked into a whimsical entertainment hub. The overall design, inspired by a beloved painting of the homeowner, delivered the wow factor desired.
