Thanks! The kitchen was designed by us and the the cabinetry was then fabricated by a local cabinetmaker. The general contractor was Interior Alterations, Inc. of Brooklyn and the cabinetmaker was American Wood & Veneer Works in Long Island City.

Cabinets - Thank you so much for your prompt reply, do you happen to know that name of the color? It's really beautiful, much softer than white would be.

We looked at several custom samples with the cabinetmaker so I don't really have a specific color name for you. However in paint colors, Benjamin Moore's OC-140 "Morning Dew" is very close. Goo luck with your project.

Thank you so much for the information, I hope my project looks half as nice as this beautiful kitchen. Hopefully for my next project I'll be able to hire your firm to do it for me.

The kitchen cabinets - What color is the lacquer on these cabinets is it it's hard to tell from the picture. Is it white, or a soft gray?

It is hard to tell from a photo. The cabinets are actually a grayish beige that we thought worked will with both the quartzite and the walnut frame.

The underside of the upper cabinets are 2'-8" above the counter. They are quite high up but they work with the proportions of the space, and allow the stone slab backsplash to be really featured.

Precise dimensions and details are best worked out in conjunction with your own architect or designer as those will vary based on the scale of the room and the scale of the cabinetry. In this case the trim is 3" wide above and 2" wide below, but keep in mind that the ceiling height in this room nearly 16' at its highest point and the windows are over 8' tall.

Our stone supplier here in the US considers this stone to be a quartzite. In the US I have seen it called Luce di Luna, White Moon, and Quartzite Bianca. Quartzite is a bit less porous than a marble, and therefore better suited to use in a kitchen. Sealing it well is key, as is the case with any stone used in a kitchen, but even well sealed you have to be prepared for the fact that it will develop a patina of etching and stains over time.

The top drawer flips down to reveal a charing station for laptops and phones. There is a mounted outlet strip inside.

I am designing an open kitchen with an island in the middle that is opened to the living room. The electric stove has to be in the island, there is no other space in the kitchen area. What can I do with the food vapor, odor, etc. if there is no way for me to install a hood that absorbs these elements?

If there is space beneath the floor under your island for a vent duct then look into cooktops with down draft vent. This pulls the fumes down.

Hi,

Thank you for your question. The cabinets are lacquered and walnut veneer and, as answered by others, the counters and backsplash are luce de luna quartzite.

The countertop is a white quartzite. It seems to go by different names from different suppliers. We sourced it from Stone Source and they call it "Luce di Luna."

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The kitchen itself is a host of all things modern, while the curved weight-and-chain windows maintain a connection to the past. “Towards the end of the project we had winter meetings sitting at the kitchen table in the apse of the space, and when it snows it feels a bit like you are sitting inside a snow globe,” Neuhaus says.
