Northlight Architects

The kitchen was relocated to relate to the rear deck and backyard. Since the house is located on a tight urban site, windows were added above the cabinets to balance the light throughout the room. Modern appliances were set in traditional cabinetry.

Is the microwave recessed? - How did you get the microwave flush with upper cabinets? Most microwaves are deeper than this. Is it recessed between the studs? Thanks!

Could be just a regular microwave. You can buy "Trim Kits" to make them look built in it is done quite regularly when installing one above a wall oven. The better "all appliance stores" should be able to help you out. Click on this link to give you an idea.

Susan Serra, CKD added this to Where To Put The Microwave? 14 Tips
This is interesting. The microwave is a bit set back from the countertop but I see real life happening around this microwave: a couple teenagers doing their homework on these stools while noshing on some nachos that Mom just pulled out of the microwave.
