Project Summary

A couple with two teenagers moved to a San Diego suburb for a family-centric life and was surrounded by homes with similar layouts in the suburban tradition. They wanted to dramatically change their living space, transforming its standard interior while retaining its sense of place. Large family gatherings are an essential aspect of the couple’s lifestyle. They also share a deep appreciation for very clean, open, and uncluttered design with European simplicity.

The original kitchen had just one way in and one way out. A total transformation of the existing kitchen and living space, which was dark and difficult to navigate, was required. A small amount of sq. footage was added near the bay window in the kitchen and in the dining area. A wall was removed between the kitchen and dining room, the ceiling was raised as much as possible, and several new windows were added. The home is now stunningly more functional, open, full of light, and visually connected to a beautiful outdoor space. The result is a wonderfully distinctive kitchen that thoroughly inhabits its surroundings and expresses the essence of European minimalism.
