Japanese Inspired Remodel in Noe Valley-Kitchen

The design of this remodel of a small two-level residence in Noe Valley reflects the owner’s passion for Japanese architecture. Having decided to completely gut the interior partitions, we devised a better arranged floor plan with traditional Japanese features, including a sunken floor pit for dining and a vocabulary of natural wood trim and casework. Vertical grain Douglas Fir takes the place of Hinoki wood traditionally used in Japan. Natural wood flooring, soft green granite and green glass backsplashes in the kitchen further develop the desired Zen aesthetic. A wall to wall window above the sunken bath/shower creates a connection to the outdoors. Privacy is provided through the use of switchable glass, which goes from opaque to clear with a flick of a switch. We used in-floor heating to eliminate the noise associated with forced-air systems.

    Rhoda is correct. It is the Kohler ProMaster. You can buy Kohler products almost anywhere. - Mark

    Thanks. I did look at Esmerelda and they happen to have a nicer piece of it. Lucky for them. The backsplash is GlassKote. I love it, but can't find anyone in the Phila area that installs it.

    I no longer have a record of the granite. It was selected by Jill Pilaroscia of ColourStudio here in San Francisco. - Mark

    We have a Stainless Steel collection that has pulls similar to these and they come in many different sizes!

    There are a lot of similar pulls out there. I think Hafele is the best, but the differences are very subtle and many other brands are less expensive. - Mark.

    Hi Carli. I just responded to your other similar question, but I will answer here as well. The hinges are probably Blum European style or something similar. With regard to bumping into the hood, I think we attached clear plastic bumpers to the sides of the hood. Also, my clients are careful. ;-) - Mark.

    No. We went with stainless steel behind the hood.
  • fldirt
    Thank you. Was there a reason besides wanting to change up the material? I would like to use the painted glass behind my hood. This is a dream kitchen!

    The granite was selected by Jill Pilaroscia of Colour Studio, Inc. I can't recall the exact color. The glass is a solid color. It must be the photo. We had this backsplash fabricated by Paige Glass in San Francisco. You might also contact sodaglassusa.com. - Mark
