All the other rooms lie on all sides of the kitchen like spokes on a bicycle, so the design had to work for a considerable amount of traffic.
Green Goods divided the 280-square-foot space into a kitchen and dining area, leaving a significant aisle between. By tilting the island slightly towards the kitchen work area, the team was able to add space for two bar stools without interrupting the pathway.

The team snagged some extra square footage from an oversized bath next to the kitchen, and created a nook for a built-in refrigerator. This opened up the bedroom wing into the kitchen, and created enough space for a colorful and lighted cookbook nook.
The unique countertops are a durable blend of concrete and recycled glass, with custom colors chosen specifically by the clients. Deep purple cabinets and a bright turquoise backsplash pay tribute to the client's color choices.
Dishwasher: Miele; oven and range: Wolf; light over sink: Artemide; backsplash: Fireclay turquoise tile; countertops: custom concrete with recycled glass
The edges of the bamboo cabinet boxes were left exposed to highlight the natural grain of the wood. Instead of drawer pulls and knobs, the team decided to notch the cabinet doors, measuring each of the family member's hands and fingers to make sure they'd fit.

A bamboo pocket door in lieu of a traditional swing door saves space and helps open up this part of the room. Green Goods used custom Green Leaf Doors — toxic-free doors made with sustainable Moso bamboo — for the first time in this residential project.
