Zephyr Loves Designers 2022 Part 2 Winners!

We’re excited to announce the Part 2 winners of  2022 Zephyr Loves Designers contest! For our ventilation category, Studio Squire featured our Lux Connect Island range hood in their kitchen. For our Presrv™ category, Circle A Builders winning design featured our Presrv™ Panel Ready Beverage Cooler.

Zephyr Ventilation Category Winner

Designer Michelle Squire with CA-based Studio Squire integrated the Zephyr Lux Connect Island range hood in her Tiburon project. The stunning property sits atop a hill and views of the San Francisco Bay can be seen from almost every window in the home.

“A goal throughout this project was to celebrate the abundance of nature surrounding the home,” says Squire. The kitchen was designed with a natural color palette including sage greens, wood tones, and creamy neutrals to provide a continuity to the colors seen outdoors.

“Selecting the Zephyr Lux Island hood was a key element in the design because it provides ventilation without interrupting the view.  We chose the white finish so the hood would blend into the ceiling rather than draw attention to itself,” continues Squire. “The Lux Connect provides high functionality and minimalism so that uninterrupted views can be enjoyed throughout the entire space.”

Lux Connect is equipped with Perimeter Aspiration, a technique that moves airflow away from the central area of the hood and evenly distributes it through narrow openings around the perimeter. This ventilation method increases air velocity and improves the capture of cooking contaminates. Lux Connect is compatible with the new Zephyr Connect app, which integrates with Amazon Alexa and Google Home devices for voice activation to control the hood functions. The app provides helpful notifications, quick access to warranty information, how-to videos, and intuitive support.

Zephyr Presrv™ Category Winner

Circle A Builders, a Utah-based custom home builder, selected the Presrv™ Panel Ready Beverage Cooler for a 375-square-foot pool house that is the essence of indoor and outdoor living.

“The inspiration for this project was a fun day by the pool! This space was created as a retreat from the sun, so having cold refreshing drinks ready with the Zephyr Presrv cooler was a must,” says Margaret Anderson, President at Circle A Builders. “We chose the panel ready option and installed a custom cabinet front so the beverage cooler would blend seamlessly with our design.”

Presrv™ Panel Ready Wine & Beverage Coolers accommodate a custom 5/8-inch to 3/4-inch depth overlay panel for a fully flush, built-in design. The panel-ready units are designed with a black toe kick and black zero-clearance hinges that will blend seamlessly with the cabinetry versus traditional stainless steel. The coolers feature PreciseTemp™ temperature control and Active Cooling Technology to ensure the temperature stays at a consistent level and 3-Color LED lighting in Cloud White, Deep Blue, and Amber.
