Encino Modern

This kitchen remodel involved the demolition of several intervening rooms to create a large kitchen/family room that now connects directly to the backyard and the pool area. The new raised roof and clerestory help to bring light into the heart of the house and provides views to the surrounding treetops. The kitchen cabinets are by Italian manufacturer Scavolini. The floor is slate, the countertops are granite, and the ceiling is bamboo.

What is the roof pitch above this kitchen. - I can not understand if ceiling is flat and raised part is flat, then where is the roof slope?

There is a 1/4"/foot slope built into both roofs. The upper ceiling is flat, and the roof slopes above it. The clerestory glass sits on a curb that hides the slope of the lower roof.

Thank you! We used a bamboo flooring product. There are many out there, and I am not entirely sure which one we used. However, Smith and Fong makes a lovely product that is sustainably harvested and uses a formaldehyde-free glue: http://www.plyboo.com/

Thank you for your interest! The cabinets were fabricated by an Italian company: Scavolini. I believe that the finish is called "Italian Walnut".

What Houzz contributors are saying:

ds design studio added this to Inspiring Materials: Slate Tile
Kitchen floor. It makes sense to use slate in the kitchen, where slip resistance and durability are important. This floor tile in grays, reddish brown, and a touch of gold provides the color palette for this stylish kitchen.
Dytecture added this to 9 Ways to Add Color to a Kitchen
8. Ceilings don't have to be white, as this kitchen demonstrates. The bamboo and the clerestory windows make the kitchen even lighter, plus the yellow tones on the bamboo ceiling work nicely with the reddish tone in the cabinets. Find a kitchen designer
5. Use rich woods. Sometimes a color contrarian just won't budge, no matter how hard you plead your case. What's a color lover to do? Look to nature. Suggest using wood (that's neutral, right?), but choose a species with strong undertones, such as cherry, mahogany or yellow pine. The results will whisper of color, even if it's not obvious.
Sheridan Interiors, Kitchens and Baths added this to How to Light a Kitchen for Older Eyes and Better Beauty
All-Around Lighting All-around lighting includes general lighting and natural light. You want to ensure that at any time of day, there is enough light for everyone to effectively use the space without incident, and that any dark areas are minimized.This kitchen showcases most of the types of lighting discussed. There's up lighting in the cove above the soffit and downlighting from the pendants over the peninsula and pot lights in the soffit. It also has toe-kick lighting, a nice contrast of material colors with low sheen and lots of natural light.
