Kitchen/Family Room Looking Out

Kitchen/Family Room Looking Out

Our clients bought an old home that had been moved to it’s site, and reconstructed.  The old portion of the home was charming and quite beautiful.  Added on to it was one of the worst additions I have ever seen.  They asked us to remove the addition, and design a kitchen/family room that was sympathetic with the old house, but give them big views and a modern aesthetic.

One other requirement was that the addition include a commercial grade kitchen.  Our clients found a company who fabricated and installed white concrete countertops (which we all love).  Even though this project was a little more modern than most of our projects, it shows that a healthy collaboration between owner and architect can create inspired places to live.

    Great addition, complimentary to the classic house.
