Eurotech WINS ANOTHER
EuroTech’s Tracey Scalzo, CKD, CBD took an Honorable Mention Award in the Large Bathroom Category of the 2008 National Kitchen and Bath Association Design Competition. The winning entry is an elegant Master Bath in a Sarasota bayfront high-rise condominium. Tracey worked closely with the homeowner, EuroTech’s owner David Asher and interior designer Anne Folsom Smith.
The awards were presented April 10th at a special luncheon in Chicago at the annual NKBA Kitchen/Bath Industry Show and Conference (K/BIS), the largest event dedicated to the kitchen and bath industry.
The winning bath design features a subtle, monochromatic palette of light colors. Multiple mirrors maximize the natural light. Hand-carved moldings, onlays, arches and keystone details were used throughout the space adding rich detail and visual interest. Drawer banks were fabricated to the exacting dimensions of the client to maximize storage of cosmetics and other toiletries. An arched top storage unit with sliding doors maximized the space available for linens, etc. Dutch Made cabinetry in a custom finish was matched with Breccia Oniciatta vanity and tub top surfaces and 18” X 18” Crema Marfil floor tiles. Emir Joanides of European Marble of Sarasota was in charge of all the stone work.
The design competition received 579 entries from across the United States and Canada. Ten different categories of the competition include kitchens, baths, other rooms and showroom displays, each offering four awards. Each entry was judged on visual appeal, creativity, the elements and principals of design, professional presentation, safety and ergonomics.
Tracey and David have both been honored with multiple design awards over the last decade and a half. Their awards span several categories including kitchens, baths, showroom displays and “other rooms” for several custom furniture installations. EuroTech has been honored with design awards in 15 of the past 16 years.
