Craftsman Kitchen

Our Clients goal is reinforce the kitchen as the center of their home, and do so with a contemporary craftsman's style. Our solution reorganized the traditional living room and family room into one central living room, and pushes the "formal dining room" into the old family room space. Our solution separates the cooking work triangle from circulation route. We accomplish this by relocating the kitchen wall to the center of the house and push the circulation to the exterior wall.
