For a well-travelled couple with an appreciation of European aesthetics, it was important that their kitchen express a refined point of view. They wanted to dramatically open up their kitchen and living areas and connect the space with their home’s lovely natural environment. The existing space was a series of separate areas with little relationship to each other or the outdoors. After several structural changes, including the removal of walls, windows, doors and a fireplace, one open space was established and defined by a balanced rhythm of wood beams in the ceiling.
New windows and glass doors now fill the space with light and circulation, grounded by a balance of refined and natural textures. Several types of wood are contrasted with the glossy sheen of white cabinetry and countertops. Throughout the kitchen, rectangles of white and dark colors and open and closed spaces create an intriguing visual duality. The interplay of textures with the clean lines of the open floor plan creates an engaging design for family life and entertaining in this natural modern kitchen.See this project in our portfolio
