Stone contemporary kitchen
 

Stone

The house and its guest house are a composition of iconic shed volumes sited between Highway 1 to the East and the end of a cul-de-sac to the West. The Eastern façade lends a sense of privacy and protection from the highway, with a smaller entrance, high windows, and thickened wall. The exposed framing of the thickened wall creates a floor to ceiling feature for books in the living room. The Western façade, with large glass barn doors and generous windows, opens the house to the garden, The Sea Ranch, and the ocean beyond. Connecting the two façades, an enclosed central porch serves as a dual entrance and favorite gathering space. With its pizza oven and easy indoor/outdoor connections, the porch becomes an outdoor kitchen, an extension of the main living space, and the heart of the house.

Building code - sink and window counter top height - I love the generous windows in front of the sink and the open space underneath it. Unfortunately, in VA, there is a building code that requires that the window cannot be any lower than the height of counter tops. Can I do the same as pictured and not be constrained by this building/fire code requirement? (Is there a similar requirement where you had built this?)

Hi dchadert,
The faucet appears to be the GROHE Concerto. You can find it on National Builder Supply (and get free shipping too!): http://www.nationalbuildersupply.com/s/grohe-concetto.html

I hope that helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Custom. Is your kitchen full of windows and lacking in wall space? Get creative and work with a designer to custom design a sink. The designer placed this floating sink directly in front of floor-to-ceiling windows.Do your research and find a professional, artist or manufacturer who can build your sink within your budget. If you take the time to do your research, custom pieces can sometimes be more cost effective than store-bought ones.
Jennifer Ott Interior Design added this to Kitchen Windows: 13 Classic and Creative Ideas
Salute the sun. Orientation to the sun is one oft-overlooked factor when placing windows. East-facing windows will get strong light and heat gain in the morning, and you won't have sun streaming into your eyes in the early evening when you are preparing dinner. North-facing windows bring in the least amount of light and are most susceptible to heat loss in colder climates. South-facing windows get the most sun and heat gain throughout the day — something to keep in mind if you live in a hot climate. West-facing windows mean intense afternoon sun, which could be annoying when you are attempting to prepare the evening meal.
Kathryn Peltier Design added this to Great Solutions for Low Kitchen Windowsills
In this more contemporary kitchen, this sink is not only floated but pulled away from the window. This is a nice design element as well as a practical one.
