BOX LIVING FRASER CAMERON ARCHITECTS While these two winning projects are different in scale, they both demonstrate a clean, contemporary aesthetic that is an integral part of the homes they were designed for. But it’s not just good looks that attracted the judges’ attention – both designs also provide their owners with well thought out, very efficient workspaces The two kitchens now progress to be judged alongside awardwinning kitchens in their respective countries, to identify the TIDA New Zealand and the TIDA Australian Kitchen of the Year winners. And those winners will go forward to our international awards, to ultimately identify the TIDA International Kitchen of the Year.
