this kitchen, the most important thing to the client was having it be open to the rest of her home so she could not only take in the views from her 19th story high-rise apartment, but also keep an eye on her two daughters. The existing kitchen was a room with a door, closing it off from the rest of
of the home which, as a whole, is fairly open. The closed space, and the fact that her home is in a high-rise (making it unique in and of itself) were the two design challenges faced when approaching the project.
The client loved our unique, consultative, collaborative and turn-key design process because
separated the kitchen from the dining room and removed the door entirely. In its place, we built a half wall for the custom cabinets. It also supports a bar-height countertop where her girls can do their homework while she cooks. Unfortunately, opening up the kitchen eliminated an entire wall of upper cabinets
