ARMONK, N.Y. -- A construction company from Armonk is the winner of a kitchen design award and is being featured in the October issue of New York Cottages & Gardens (NYC&G) Magazine.

The project was built by Legacy Construction Northeast and designed by Laura Kaehler Architects of Greenwich, Conn. 

The fabricator was Hallmark Designs in Wood, which works closely with Legacy Construction Northeast.

Hallmark’s Joe Brennan and his staff built the custom kitchen in their shop in Danbury, Conn. 

NYC&G Magazine will feature the award-winning project in their October issue. 

The Innovation in Design Awards honor top design in New York and submissions are judged by a panel of judges composed of key influencers in the design industry. 

Legacy Construction Northeast worked with the design team on the mid-century lakefront home to create a space with a "retro-chic" palette of "warm woods, cool fresh whites" and stainless-steel material. 

“One of the challenges was to make the half-inch reveal between the drywall and the cabinet millwork perfect to give a consistent, crisp accent frame to the millwork and make it really pop,” says Legacy Construction’s Principal-in-Charge, Chris Yaroscak. “The outcome is fantastic.” 

The wood portions of the kitchen are quarter-sawn black walnut, and the complementing finishes are a brushed stainless with Bendheim Cabinet Glass insets and Sugatsune cabinet pulls. The countertops were fabricated by Precision Stone from Caesarstone. 

“The stone island top and each side of the range have a dynamic effect as they turn 90 degrees and ‘waterfall,’ or run down, the sides of the millwork to meet the floor,” said Yaroscak. “The floor is a 12-by-24 gray Italian porcelain tile that is indistinguishable from a gray stone, but much more durable. It’s a truly phenomenal kitchen.”
