Kitchen View

A family kitchen with a focus on the yard was the Owner’s intent. Plus some space to cloister away in private luxury. Down went the useless undersized garage, and up went a two story addition. With space to drop off incoming junk, space to eat, space to lounge, space to work, and a connection to a new patio, the kitchen fulfills the goal of a room to live in. Perched above with windows all around, the new Owner’s Suite . . .

They look like Tech Lighting Firebird pendants, also available in white, green and amber. Let me know if I can assist.

Bill Fry Construction - Wm. H. Fry Const. Co.
Looks like a KitchenAid Architect Series II KBFS20EV
It falls under the general category of "french door" refrigerator and there are many to choose from: http://www.ajmadison.com/refrigerators/french-door-refrigerators/

This is a Kitchen-Aid counter depth french door style refrigerator. While I do not remember the model number, it would be a 2010 year model.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

To cut down on cost, Ahmann wanted to use as much of the existing foundation as possible. This forced the team to work within a narrow and L-shape space, which made spatial organization difficult. Ahmann divided up the long island and the rest of the kitchen into distinct areas defined by function. Cabinets: semicustom Shaker style by Executive Kitchens, Misty Green and Antique White; pendants: Jesco Lighting
Becky Harris added this to 6 Incredible Garage Conversions
Thomas Ahmann of Ahmann Architects transformed a narrow garage into this family kitchen in Washington, D.C.
9. Mint Green Garage RenovationDesigner: Thomas AhmannLocation: Washington, D.C. Architect Thomas Ahmann applied smart space-saving techniques to transform this tiny garage into a new, bright and open kitchen. The narrow garage maintained its L-shape footprint but was divided into distinct work, cooking and eating areas. Mint cabinetry, navy light fixtures and dark countertops create a sophisticated, cheerful palette.
