Modern Kitchen for a Mid-Century Modern Home

An ultra-modern modern ranch home in St. Louis County, MO was built in 1958 but had a 1980s kitchen. The homeowners wanted a more functional kitchen that better fit the vintage of their home, and would embrace their indoor/outdoor lifestyle centered around the pool.

A portion of the kitchen’s exterior wall was removed for an addition between the kitchen and family room, creating a vestibule that brings in light and views to the pool. It also made room for a powder room that also serves as a changing room. The kitchen is all about precise function for cooking and entertaining, tailored exactly to the family’s needs while respecting the mid-century modern architecture of the home.

The floor is a 20"x20" glazed porcelain tile by Millennium, named Telluride. The backsplash is a quartz tile by Cambria, in a color palette named Windmere. Thank you for your question.

This is a classic mid-century modern ranch home with a flat, slanted roof. In the kitchen - which is at the peak of the slant - the ceilings start at 12' (above the clerestory windows) and reduce to 8' in the living room, behind the kitchen.
Thank you for your question.
