Case Study

Construction Drawing







Project Description

The homeowners desired a large modern kitchen that would flow with their existing home. We created a space they would love to entertain in. The solution was to remove a wall separating the kitchen and living room and raise the sunken living room floor.  This created a larger more unified room.

Among the items on the homeowners’ wish list was more storage and counter space. Using space from an existing laundry room allowed for a bigger pantry and room for a second sink. Storage was also increased by bringing the cabinetry up to the ceiling.  A dedicated wine and beverage center is enjoyed during parties.

The framed copper ceiling serves as a dramatic focal point above the generously sized island. Stainless steel Kitchen Aid appliances and a stainless apron sink add modern functionality to the kitchen. Artistic lighting fixtures and a custom backsplash complete the room.
