Project Description

A spectacular view, previously impeded by a wall, is dramatically expanded when the wall comes out and the kitchen becomes a part of the living and dining areas. The view is further magnified as the soffit is removed from over the sink, extending the vista and permitting more light to enter. An enlarged island with lots of drawer storage allows for casual seating and additional prep space, as the cooking is moved from the island to the wall. A 48″ range with double ovens centralizes the cooking and creates a new location for the refrigerator in the new open kitchen floor plan. With two major walls out, all rooms are unified as a single, free-flowing space. A pantry on a nearby wall and additional tall storage in the formal dining further bring the spaces together. Close by, an intimate bar contains seating for 2 and ample storage for wine, liquors and glassware. The overall palette of white with light and dark woods emphasizes the pleasing, contemporary infusion of this large and inviting space.
