Buena Vista Residence modern kitchen
 

Buena Vista Residence

Typical of many San Francisco Victorians, this home’s kitchen had evolved over the years out of an enclosed porch. The centerpiece of the new light-filled space is a custom island / drop-leaf table that converts from a casual family dining area to an ample area for the children’s art projects, or seating for twelve. Open shelving and a series of custom ledges for the family’s seasonal canning efforts intensify the casual, working feel to the kitchen, which is both modern, yet appropriate to the essence of the home.

Have you seen anything remotely similar to the Logico series in a lower price point?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Kitchens - Not Just for Cooking Anymore
This island serves as a tall prep table, dinner table, or homework table.
Becky Harris added this to Modern Icons: The Logico Lamp
This is the Triple Linear Suspension version of the lamp. It's a good option for long dining tables and kitchen islands. The lamp is made from handblown glass, which diffuses the light in an unique way. It's also available in a variety of configurations and sizes, as well as ceiling mounted, wall sconce, table lamp and floor lamp versions. If you do a quick search of "Logico Lamp" you'll see they are widely available at many sites online. Tip: Follow the online sites that you like on Twitter and Facebook. Often they send out coupon codes exclusively to their followers that are great for when you are ready to invest in an expensive item.
To preserve a family-room feel to the space, the primary kitchen functions form a long, partially hidden galley tucked along one wall. The designer was able to tuck the most intensive kitchen functions off to the side so that when you enter the room, it first seems like another casual living space. One of the owners cooks a great deal, using the kitchen every day, organizing extensive annual canning projects and cooking in a hand-built outdoor pizza oven in the adjacent yard. The openness, the design of the center table, corkboard panel detail, and canning shelves are all very specific to the needs of this family.
