Kitchen interior

This early 1900's stone and brick house had a cramped kitchen and a rear entrance addition that blocked views to the yard. We were asked to enlarge the kitchen, add an area for a breakfast table and improve the entry. By demolishing the existing rear entrance, we were able to create a large addition that houses a new mudroom, kitchen and breakfast room. The addition is long and narrow to preserve several mature Japanese maples, visible through the breakfast room bay. The addition mimics the roof lines of the house, but is clad in wood shingles, siding and a coated copper roof to distinguish it from the main house and recall the family’s Maine coast cabin. A clerestory above the cooking area provides ample light throughout the year, and provides passive cooling. Windows and doors open the large interior volume to the maple, the outdoor garden and patio. Photos: Jeffrey Totaro

Hanging Pot Rack? - Where did you get the hanging PotRack?

I love how despite the modern elegance of the
kitchen design, that rack and the pots hanging on it imparts the space with a cozy, lived-in feel. Well done. :-)

Thanks! The homeowner very much wanted a pot rack, so we figured out how to suspend one in that open ceiling, and had it custom built by Electro-Mechanical Systems in Spring City, PA.

If you can work out the size of the floor tiles you can work out the distance between the two chairs - I am taking a guess they are 40 cm x 40 cm, and if you imagine people sitting at the bar and people sitting at the table I don't think there looks to be enough for both at the same time, which is a shame, there is only 60cm extra room available here, two people back to back could not decide to get up at the same time.

Awesome kitchen! What company makes the blue Montauk Brazilian slate sink? I have never seen one like it before. It's amazing!

Thanks! The counters and big custom sink were done by Blue Bell Kitchens in Blue Bell, PA. We're having some debate around the office about whether those really were slate or soapstone, but the project notes say slate.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Hang pots and expose beams to add space overhead. There is something so comforting about the clatter of pots in an overhead rack — and this setup is a great space saver, to boot. Exposing beams creates a higher ceiling, which can make even a small kitchen feel more spacious.

If You Like Your Pans on ViewSuspended pot rack. The obvious on-view storage option is a pot rack suspended over an island or peninsula. Make sure the pot rack is mounted high enough that everyone's head clears the cookware, but not so high up that you can't reach everything.
