Whole House Remodel

The existing kitchen was a large, isolated space. Walls separated it from the main living spaces, and residual space was utilized as an exposed laundry room and eating area.

The clients desired a functional kitchen with adequate storage, a walk-in pantry, professional appliances, and an informal dining area. Interestingly, the original home did not contain a formal dining room-something the new homeowners much desired. They also desired a home with a much more open feel, which allows the opportunity to entertain and observe their two small children.

Considering the lots smaller size, the subdivisions setback regulations, and client budget, we needed to utilize as much existing space as was possible. The large space the existing kitchen occupied was separated into the new formal dining area and kitchen. The old laundry area and part of the existing children's bath was absorbed to create a new walk-in pantry.

The new kitchen was transformed into a galley-like food prep area with a large island separating the dining room from the kitchen. Flanking each side of the island are columns that help define the two spaces they separate, leaving a large opening for easy viewing into the dining and living area. The columns are replicated in a new opening between the living and new dining area. The owners now have visual and physical access into multiple living spaces. The columns flanking the island also support the new custom hood enclosure that rests on detailed wood brackets. The brackets mimic those used on exterior features.

One of the few added spaces to the homes original footprint is a new breakfast nook. The nook has windows on three sides which allow plenty of light to filter through into the kitchen space.

The new kitchen is now a bright, functional space, with easy access to storage, and a commanding view through the main living and entertaining sections of the home.

I wish I could answer that. Our client had them prior to our remodel. I will do some research and see if I can find something similar.
