The much-anticipated House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year with its first-ever outdoor component was unveiled July 18 in New York’s Rockefeller Center. The structure of the custom kitchen was created using a combination of modular components from the Belgard Elements Collection. This includes outdoor living room and kitchen units that are manufactured by Harmony Outdoor Living in a controlled factory setting using Belgard pavers and wall products and shipped in sections to enable site assembly with skid steer. Mike Miles of Belgard Hardscapes and Harmony Outdoor Living notes that “[the] line of factory-built modular units provides a way to easily create luxury hardscape kitchens for a fraction of the time and cost of a site-built kitchen.”

The fully functioning outdoor kitchen has a paver patio that continues around the entire building, creating a wrap-around dining and living area flanked by a fireplace and matching firewood box, all created with pavers and garden wall products from Belgard. The wrap-around patio is enclosed by a wrought iron fence from Merchants Metals and Belgard pillars, with decorative paver ramps at either end to provide easy access to the raised building. The showcase kitchen is opened daily to the public through July 22 for tours, tastings and presentations.
