Business Description
Klopf Architecture brings the outside in. Our firm creates warm, modern designs that admit natural light and allow openness to nature. Our design approach weighs many factors to create custom designs with just the right level of connection to the outside world: clients' goals and lifestyle, site orientation, views, climate, and neighborhood context. Our primary goal is to create spaces people love to inhabit.

In business for more than 13 years, Klopf Architecture is a team of modern architecture specialists. Our four senior team members together have over 70 years of experience in architecture.

Hi, the peninsula was intended to be a really large space for people to work together on projects, cooking, whatever. So it's quite large: 4.5' x 9'... and the recessed area along the back wall matches the peninsula's length. The oven and fridge are outside the 9'.

The white bar you see directly under the countertop is a piece of structural wood, and there is also a plywood surface below the countertop material.

We used Marvin windows, as well as some field-built fixed glass panels.
