Chicago Net Positive Luxury Home

The kitchen has a very large island that wraps over the edge of the cabinet ends. Clerestory windows bring in light above the cabinets.

An organic 'branch' inspired series of pendants are set above the dining room table.

The owner selected this, but it is similar to this stainless steel subway style tile.

I hope that helps! Good luck with your project!

Beautiful feel - - what are the dimensions of the island? - Also, what are the overall dimensions of the kitchen? (especially the width. I have a 12' wide ( x 24' long) space for kitchen + eating area and am hoping to be able to incorporate an island.)

The width of the kitchen is 12'-11" x 17'-0".

For your kitchen, 12'-0" width would give you 24" deep for the cabinets, say a 3'-4" aisles around the island, a 3'-0" island (24" cabinets plus a back panel and about 9" for eat-in counter) and then a 3'-8" aisle to walk in. If you could reduce the island down a little bit the extra space would be good for the aisle, as the chairs stick out a bit.

I hope that helps! Good luck with your project.

Kitchen counter - Could you please tell me the name of the counter. We are building and I'm doing cream cabinets and expresso island. I'm having a hard time picking counter tops because I like granite but like the veining as in this piece.

I love the lighting in the dining space. The barstools on the kitchen island have armrests and look comfy.
