The dramatic, yet functional design of this kitchen captures an abundance of clean, angular lines and shapes, with rich natural materials that harmonize into a cozy atmosphere.
- The room boasts a neutral palette with deep brown, stained clear alder cabinetry around the perimeter and into the pantry. A slightly rubbed, painted island features raised legs and a 3” stone countertop. The horizontally placed white bronze hardware accentuates the warm tones of the space.
- The 26 foot high cathedral ceiling with its varying beam heights and structurally necessary elements provided a challenge when designing the space. The decision to extend the cabinetry upward and terminate it under the beams created a sense of continuity with existing architectural elements. The upper glass cabinet doors lighten the visual weight and allow for additional texture.
- Irregularly stacked stone niches were created to conceal structural posts which provide a natural backdrop between adjacent rooms and allowed two additional work stations. One station being a wet bar area with under counter appliances and the other entire wall dedicated to the commercial style range and custom copper hood.
- The Subzero PRO48 refrigerator with a glass door feature was the owner’s only “must have” request and it undoubtedly the most celebrated element in this kitchen.
