The wood is White Oak... it's solid, not veneered. No stain was used.

Oak & Broad
Beyond that it looks like they used a water borne clear poly finish as well. That allows the wood to keep its natural color and not turn overly golden from an oil based finish.

The cabinets are a true black. They are painted with an oil-based paint in a semi-gloss sheen.

The spacing was about the same on both sides of the island... roughly 3'6". Hope this helps.

Did Urrutia Design do the architecture too? This is a very unique and interesting floorplan! - The interior design is beautiful too and really accentuates the clever layout of space. Love it!

The island is roughly 4' x 12' (36"T). It sits 5 people comfortably. There is an under-counter refrigerator and dishwasher in the island opposite the range.

The doors were purchased through Glass Concepts in San Rafael, CA. They're basically a "bi-folding" system that glide along a track.

Thank you; I wonder if the Q&A system has a glitch, as some repetition seems to be happening?

Love your work; that much can be repeated.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Originally the far end of this space — now a dining area — was a bedroom. Urrutia knocked out a wall to transform a 14x45' room into this 14x65' room. At right is one of the home's most popular innovations: two 22-foot folding doors that open to the pool and outdoor kitchen. "Before, it was all lit with windows, with a door to the deck at each end," Urrutia says. "I wanted to connect the indoors and the outdoors."
Black absorbs rather then reflects light, so if you are using a large amount of the hue in a space, try to counter it with plenty of light — preferably of the natural variety. The high white ceiling, skylights and wall of sliding glass doors in this kitchen more than balance out the black.
