Arts and crafts kitchen photo in Seattle

Montlake

Craftsman Kitchen, Seattle

This remodel of an architect’s Seattle bungalow goes beyond simple renovation. It starts with the idea that, once completed, the house should look as if had been built that way originally. At the same time, it recognizes that the way a house was built in 1926 is not for the way we live today. Architectural pop-outs serve as window seats or garden windows. The living room and dinning room have been opened up to create a larger, more flexible space for living and entertaining. The ceiling in the central vestibule was lifted up through the roof and topped with a skylight that provides daylight to the middle of the house. The broken-down garage in the back was transformed into a light-filled office space that the owner-architect refers to as the “studiolo.” Bosworth raised the roof of the stuidiolo by three feet, making the volume more generous, ensuring that light from the north would not be blocked by the neighboring house and trees, and improving the relationship between the studiolo and the house and courtyard.

    I love the look when they are done right like this, and when the person is a neatnik, but I would NEVER be able to keep them up! Everything would be totally gross in a world where I had open shelves!

    The hardware on these cabinets rocks though. I wouldn't have noticed it if you wouldn't have posted this ;)

    I like the whole look of this kitchen, I just know the open shelving is not practical for everyday use. Makes a great photo, though, and I like the hardware, too!

Well-worn Oriental rugs underfoot add warm color and a cozy texture to this efficient kitchen.
