BBQ and Outdoor Kitchen

Michele Lee Willson Photography

A refined material palette modernizes this conventional 60′s ranch-home’s yard. Repetition of materials like stone, ipe and concrete combine beautifully to form a bold and contemporary garden.

Layered walls perform double duty as both sculpture and a way to define gathering spaces. Contrasting leaf textures and hues harmonize with the hardscape, and plant masses add their colorful statement to the canvas.

We used 1" boards for the sides with a small gap. Ipe is really dense so you can install a little tighter than other woods

This was a custom design built all on site for the client. Unfortunately, it is not available in prefab.

We got them here, http://www.marinoutdoorliving.com/furniture.html, but it was a couple years ago - so they may not carry them any more. I believe the line came from here http://modernoutdoor.com/

Many of the companies that make Grills, Lynx, DCS also make refrigerators. Be mindful of the seasonal conditions. If there is any freeze thaw, even slight - you will want to weatherize.

If left alone it will gray out. It depends on what stain or sealer you use. Some require every year, but there are some that should last 3 years. If you are in San Francisco Area, Beronio Lumber carries a great assortment of finishes

Very clean design. How is the ipe fastened and how did you handle the corners? - Were biscuit fasteners used, or is this T&G? Also, how were the corner pieces made, or were they pre-constructed?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Design Your Perfect Outdoor Kitchen
In terms of materials, everything needs to be durable, weatherproof, heat resistant, and easy to clean. This means rot resistant wood (such as teak, redwood, or cedar), stone, and stainless steel. Also, think about how hot materials get in direct sunlight, or even just warmer temperatures. Since you'll most likely be using this during the summer, you don't want to build your backyard kitchen out of something you'll barely be able to touch!

Vanessa Brunner added this to Readers' Choice: The Top 20 Patios of 2011
15. Houzzers loved the contrast between the green granite countertop and the reddish Ipe wood on this outdoor kitchen. This photo was also bookmarked for layout inspiration — the kitchen has plenty of room for cooking, serving up drinks and eating a full meal.
Jamie Gold, CKD, CAPS added this to 2012 Cabinet Trends: Storage for Every Room
Outdoor kitchens continue to explode in popularity, and now many feature outdoor cabinets that rival (or complement) their indoor companions. Higher-end design and the same types of accessories that enhance your indoor kitchen will be making their way outdoors.
Alex Jewett: Godden Sudik Architects added this to 9 Tips for an Outdoor Kitchen That Lets You Enjoy the Party
Including a bar top in your kitchen allows guests to sit and talk while you prepare and cook. This brings the party to the cook. Many guests enjoy being close to the cook, and with a bar top they can watch all the action while still staying out of the main kitchen space.
