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.

PROJECT FEATURES: 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. Highlights include

Highlights include
+ A corner tall pantry solution (sleekly enclosing storage equivalent to 12 wall units)
+ Extensive use of drawer-systems, with accessories like pull-out cutlery trays and dish organizers
+ A small appliances garage which houses a “breakfast bar”
+ “Hidden” drawers in the toe-kick for table linens and oversized cookware

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.

Arclinea, which is noted in the bottom left corner, is the cabinet manufacturer that makes this system.

The small appliance within the garage is actually a toaster oven. I do not have manufacturer or model information.

Slide it away Nifty pull-out drawers are a great space-expanding solution. They can fit snugly under just about any surface – underneath the microwave or higher up above – which means you can benefit from different worktop heights, too. Different workspace heights gives you flexibility with tasks and accommodate different people’s statures.
