1. Who was your favorite entry and why? (other than your own apt.)
We feel David and Im's entry effectively combines their separate lives, taking full advantage of the height of their apartment in a way that is efficient and beautifully crafted. Their tasteful integration of storage is inspiring.
2. Why you should be the champ?
In addition to a modest renovation of a dilapidated kitchen, we distilled our design ideas into a single element that allowed the main space to function in a variety of ways. This intervention satisfied the needs of two people with different sleep schedules, keeping much of the space open for multiple types of entertaining. This concept allowed us to realize our design intent on a limited budget.
