I agree, it lost much of the craftsman/arts & craft of the cottage. However, the modern is what the owners wanted and they certainly got it. Skylights, lots of shelving and everything including the kitchen sink in a redefined space. It's hide everything, compartmentalization including a kid's art area, adult office area, cleaning/broom area, dining area, pantry, prep area, secondary seating area and cooking/cleaning areas. I'm glad to see that wood is still part of the design. The wood flooring (is that engineered wood/tile?) makes that kitchen.

The article spoke about an island, but I didn't see any island in any of the photos nor in the floor plan. I assume the writer meant a peninsula that was attached to the cabinetry next to the stove. I guess that is used as secondary seating or as a prep area.

In the last pic, before the floor plan, it looks like the chair has longer legs in back than in front and the rugs seem (to me) to be on two different levels. Yet it does not show in the floor plan or in any other picture. Are my eyes deceiving me or does the peninsula have different heights on each side. I love Arts and Crafts and have a kitchen yet to re-do (the rest of the 1928 house) is done. This is my second restoration of the era and your design is excellently executed, well thought and eye candy to me! Thanks for putting it in a public context. I live in West Virginia, but my son is in Seattle. I hope he sees this, his home is also Arts and Crafts.

shaunasteadman: Optical illusion caused by photo angle and lighting used. The shot was taken across the end of the dining table with the grey runner on it. Thus is looks like there are two different levels of flooring. Photo above that one shows the "back side" of that same hall with the entry cabinets and places for shoes. Floor is same level as kitchen/dining area.
