The winners are:

The winners’ stands will be on show at Grand Designs Live London from 2nd – 10th May 2015. The judging panel included TV broadcaster and Live show host, Kevin McCloud; editor of Essential Kitchen & Bathroom Business magazine, Emma Hedges; acting editor of Grand Designs magazine, Sophie Vening and marketing director for Miele UK, Dominic Worsley.
“Once again we have had some fantastic entries where the kitchens would transform the way a customer would cook and entertain at home,” says Dominic Worsley. “We are thrilled to be able to work with some exceptional designers and give them the opportunity to showcase their talent at Grand Designs Live.”
