Hi, thank you for your nice comment! The flooring is Flexco rubber floor tiles, with a radial pattern.

Can you use the door? - This is a great solution for a rennovation challenge I have. Now is it possible to use the door? I don't really have to for my kitchen , but am curious.

Hi Karen,

No, the ceiling height was too low for a door, so we put in a full-height window, then designed a bar counter in front of it. The seating has a sidewalk cafe-type feel to it, and the counter prevents people from accidentally trying to walk through.

Hi, the owners selected the paint colors, and we do not have them on file. It was a very light blue, with a hint of green. Sorry I can't help you more - my advice would be to do several large swatches in your room so you can see them in different areas at different times of the day, particularly. And of course it helps to tie the color in with other finishes, other room colors, and furniture.

Hi there.
Do you know whether these stools are comfortable? I'm deciding between this one and the Tolix Marais bar stool (with a back). I prefer the look of the Bertoia stool but am concerned about comfort!
Thank you.

Ogawa Fisher Architects
I believe the Bertoia stool is very comfortable, as far as metal stools go, especially with the seat cushion.

Cabinet Hardware - Where is your cabinet hardware from? What is the style called? Love this kitchen, the bar, the floor, everything!

Hello, and thank you! The cabinet hardware was an IKEA-version of a mirror pull, but they are no longer available from IKEA. Mirror pulls come in different sizes and finishes, and you can see and example here:

I hope that helps.

Hello, thank you for your inquiry. The sculpture is part of the homeowner's art collection, and I'm not sure where it was acquired. Sorry I can't be more helpful...

Hi, thank you for inquiring. The knives are on a magnetic strip, and this one is from IKEA: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/00136621/
Can you tell me which shelf you are referring to? I am happy to answer any questions you may have.

How do you support the wood structurally? The one across the window?

Thank you for reporting this. Undo
Ogawa Fisher Architects
The counter looks like solid wood but is actually a series of wood strips laminated together. It is supported on brackets at each end, which are concealed. There are no supports along the window wall.

This was a custom-made counter made of beech. We made the dimensions such that it can slide into the drawer cavity of the far cabinet.

They are flat panel IKEA cabinet doors in white. The cabinet door styles and availability tend to change, but they usually have a flat, white door option.

Does this bar retract to access outdoors? Very cool either way.

Thank you for reporting this. Undo
Ogawa Fisher Architects
Thank you. The bar has dual purposes: to provide a cooking and eating area that faces the backyard, and also as a barrier to prevent people from using that opening as a doorway. There wasn't enough head height under the existing roof, so we designed a large, expansive window facing the yard, and opted for a separate door adjacent to the bar (you can see the door frame towards the front of the photo).

We used rubber floor tiles in this kitchen. I think the brand was Flexco but there are other brands as well. We used a pattern with small raised circles but they also have other patterns such as squares, diamonds, etc. I hope that helps.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

All of the cabinetry is from IKEA, but by mixing in a custom bar, quartz countertop, and beautiful bi-fold window, Ogawa and Fisher were able to achieve a distinctly high-end feel. "I think our resourcefulness shows a sense of style and balance," says Ogawa. Countertop: Caesarstone 3cm Pebble in a honed finishRange and Oven: pre-existingHood: BroanCabinetry: IKEA

This shows the folding windows to close off the pass-through and how they kind of hang off the back side so that there's no need for a big counter. We think that may be what we need--when open, the windows take up space in the living room (to avoid hitting the faucet) (W)
