Tucson design team wins national kitchen award

When Lori Carroll started the initial design sketches for a kitchen in a new Foothills home in 2012, she had a good feeling, and told co-designer Debra Gelety she thought there was something special about the project. That feeling turned out to be justified, as Lori Carroll & Associates recently won the 2016 Best Kitchen award from the National Kitchen & Bath Association for the design. “It takes a team of people to produce this type of kitchen. … There’s a host of people that put all their design expertise together to create this,” Carroll said, citing the work of cabinet fabricators, granite installers, electricians and others. The collaboration reaches back to before construction started on the house, homeowner Barbara Goldberg said, with an initial meeting between various contractors involved in the project. “One of the reasons that we had such an extraordinarily wonderful experience with the entire building of the house was we had a fabulous contractor, an amazing landscape architect, a wonderful architect and a fabulous designer. So the whole team really worked,” Goldberg said.
