Rocky Mountain Stone in Albuquerque, N.M., won first prize in the Artisan Group photo contest for an elaborate kitchen project using Artisan Stone Collection Gold Coast granite.
The kitchen in the winning photos was designed by homeowners Greg & Shana Levenson, and fabricated and installed by Artisan Group member Rocky Mountain Stone. The contractor was Brian Matteucci Construction, and the photographer was Jerry Goffe.
The contest was open to all 35 Artisan Group member companies. Second place went to Top Master in Kansas City.
“The Levenson kitchen was our most challenging renovation ever,” said Brian Matteucci, contractor. “The only part of it that remains the same is the 8-ft. ceiling height.”
The project includes a crescent edge, apron front travertine sink and slide-in range, with a full height backsplash on the buffet.
The entire Levenson home -- kitchen, master bath, game room, office, pantry, master closet, main downstairs bath, main upstairs bath, kids bath one, kids bath two, basement bar and garage -- is outfitted in granite and marble tops, all fabricated by Rocky Mountain Stone.
With 35 members, the Artisan Group covers most major markets in the United States and Canada, and it can handle a variety of fabrication needs from a local to national scale.
