PROJECT SUMMARY:

A retired couple with grandchildren and a shared love for art, our clients live in an architect-designed home that had one missing element - a kitchen to express their personal style and suit their needs today. While improved function was certainly desirable, especially the ability to easily clean and maintain the kitchen, the aesthetics of the room were more important to our clients. They wanted a kitchen full of light and life.

Throughout the rest of the home, white walls act as a canvas for the couple's lifelong collection of art. In the kitchen, we encouraged the use of color and introduced materials and textures with layers of visual appeal. The space was designed with careful attention to balance and symmetry. Appliances are rigorously flush with the cabinetry, contributing to the feeling of a clean and open space. An organically shaped custom-designed light fixture makes a dramatic statement in the center of the room, setting the stage for the artwork displayed throughout the kitchen.

From above, the existing kitchen looked disconnected from the rest of the home. Cluttered and ordinary, it was not an inspiring space.

From any angle, the new kitchen excites the senses with color, light and interesting surfaces. The space is open and welcoming, with engaging balance.

The old kitchen design was cluttered with appliances that had no natural home and could only be placed on the countertop. It was difficult to keep the space clean.

The work area of the new kitchen design is streamlined and highly functional, eliminating clutter and allowing for easy prep, cooking and cleanup.

Once cluttering the kitchen countertop, the coffee maker now has an impressive station of its own, accessed by opening sliding pocket doors and hidden when not in use.

Warm and inviting, the new kitchen design expresses the clients' love for art and their desire for a space filled with light and life. The exquisite design stands on its own while bringing a new sense of continuity to the artistic home.
