Recipe for Living

WINNER: FIRST PLACE, Kitchen Design / ASID SAN DIEGO / “2008 Design Excellence Awards”

Photo credit: Arclinea San Diego / Gail Owens Photography

Design by Lisa Wilson-Wirth, CKD, featuring custom cabinetry from The Arclinea Collection (Source: Arclinea San Diego).

PROJECT GOALS: With a passion for the delicious moments family gatherings bring, this oceanfront hi-rise vacation condo was extensively remodeled to meet the needs of a vibrant extended family. Fundamental to the Clients’ recipe for family harmony: an open, contemporary living plan to connect the kitchen, dinning and living areas with the condo’s exquisite views. “Breaking down walls,” a multi-functional peninsula now defines the kitchen perimeter — inviting participation in preparation and consumption —providing an axis from which all other activities radiate. Living, dining, cooking and socializing co-exist in a continual interlacing of relationships and activity.

PROJECT FEATURES: Work surfaces are kept to one height, and work zones carefully placed to take advantage of sweeping ocean views and extensive natural day-lighting. To satisfy the culinary requirements of multiple cooks within a small kitchen footprint, every Arclinea cabinet incorporates unique solutions for maximizing storage and enhancing culinary work functions in ergonomically sensitive ways.

GREEN DESIGN: Materials specified are ecologically sensitive and cutting-edge. Arclinea cabinets feature sustainably-sourced stained oak veneers in medium grey, paired with our water-based white matte lacquer, and recyclable acid-etched glass. (The finishes complement the coastal setting and offer easy-care maintenance in a household with children.) Cabinets feature Arclinea's recessed “Italia” handle-grips in stainless steel and stainless steel plinths.

The resulting award-winning kitchen design is a true recipe for modern living — a sophisticated but accessible design that is integral to all the household activities.

Off to the right are large windows with a view (that would be our pool area). Turning the island to face east when cooking is an idea I hadn't thought of. This would keep the sink in it's current location. The kitchen table could be positioned the same as the one in this photo. I like this layout for our kitchen. Has potential. Just a thought.
