Upcycled Kitchen

This modern remodel of a 1921 Dutch Colonial kitchen in Portland's Irvington neighborhood upcycles an old kitchen with good bones into a model of form and function. Designed by Kevin Fischer of Alice Designs and Charlotte Cooney of Domestic Arts, the project stripped away layers of disjointed architectural accretion to restore harmony through subtle-yet-innovative applications of traditional materials in cabinetry, counters and floors. A pressed tin ceiling ties the kitchen remodel to the rest of the historic home – modern appliances and fixtures exist in accord with traditional detailing.

These are quartz countertops - "Sand Castle" by Pental Quartz. Very similar to "Cinder" by Caesarstone if Pental is not available in your area. We used 3cm size and doubled it on the island for visual heft. Thanks for your interest! Charlotte Cooney. Domestic Arts
