Fit for a Family

Wed 12 2008

Large Kitchens. Plans and details were thoughtfully designed. Space for gathering around a built-in banquette seat with views to the exterior patio, stone fireplace and television allows for those seated to interact with the cook. A raised breakfast bar next to the new patio door permits a quick morning meal and provides an excellent gathering spot. Cooking, cleaning and food preparation on professional appliances are aligned in the central core, with easy access to the food pantry around the corner. Peter Vanderhyden fit-for-a-family

Modern & Marvelous

Wed 12 2008

Large Kitchens.  Successfully integrated behind the tranquil facade is a range of components that allows the kitchen’s layout to be customized to suit all space requirements. The island plays a key role as it permits the main functions to be brought together in an area designed to ensure freedom of movement. A stainless steel door lift conceals the microwave adjoining the steam oven and drawer below, joining the adjacent oven and coffee system. In contrast to the reflective steel block, clear rift-cut maple instructs the eye toward unity. The hidden pantry interacts with the surrounding cabinetry to create conformity without interruption.

Wine & Dine

Wed 12 2008

Medium Kitchens. Cabinetry, tile and a stucco hood were chosen to pay homage to the original style of the house, but not directly replicate it. All the conveniences of modern day appliances were added, including dishwasher drawers and secondary refrigerator drawers. The client also requested a wine rack and open shelving. A built-in Miele coffee machine completed a tall stack of appliances that include an oven and microwave, each with its own landing space. Sarah Grace Michalowski wine-dine

Fall Retreat

Tue 12 2008

Medium Kitchens. The custom antique copper hood to become the art form, with the chiseled slate wall becoming a unique backdrop. The refrigerator was fully integrated to blend in with the cabinetry, so it would not compete visually with the hood wall. The island was designed for food preparation and incorporated an antique copper radius bar top, which counterbalanced the angular lines of the Cheng hood. The island contained the prep sink, microwave, steamer, and wine cooler, making it very conducive to entertaining. Sandra L. Steiner-Houckfall-retreat

Wooded Splendor

Tue 12 2008

Small Kitchens. The kitchen was reconfigured around an island concept with ample natural light. Reorganiztion of the footprint provided an uncluttered place of honor for their antique sideboard. The island includes a counter-height eating area and an overall larger space to prepare meals. The light porcelain floor tile contrasts the dark cabinet stain, with a dark granite countertop completing the color palette. Tony Huntwooded-splendor2

Modern Efficiency

Tue 12 2008

Small Kitchens. A wall between the kitchen and living space needed to be removed in order to extend the kitchen cabinets by approximately three feet. By doing so, enough space was created to incorporate the additional appliances. By placing the sink in the corner. The 1920s coziness remained by choosing a dark cherry wood that added warmth to the home, but a flat slab door with a combination of brushed and polished stainless added a contemporary flare. A second counter level was added to incorporate seating for two and create a division between the two rooms. Two suspended shelves were added to open up the space in the upper cabinets and give a greater ease of accessibility. Areti Tanya Rentzos modern-efficiency
