About the Project
Asymmetry is the defining element in this loft-like kitchen. Stained wood beams spotlight the soaring vaulted ceiling. On the range wall, the fridge enclosure and pantry bookending this section have staggered heights. The flue on the gently curved stainless vent hood is offset toward the left. Additional appliances on another wall are installed in mid-height cabinets, positioned to the right of center.
Flat panel doors are highlighted by a smokey stain on rift-cut white oak. Its deeply-grained surface morphs the color as lighting conditions and viewing angles change. Toekicks are stainless steel for a floating effect. Lift-up uppers and a tall unit feature aluminum-framed doors with acid-etched glass, allowing a peek at tableware and pantry contents. Efficient pullouts and a corner swingout make the room as convenient as it is beautiful.
Mixed materials provide richness. Flanking the hood are stainless steel floating shelves set against a patinated zinc backsplash. Concrete countertops add texture and an industrial accent. Walnut open shelves at the end of the base cabinets and wrapping around the island inject warmth.
Two spacious dining options include a custom breakfast table of 4” thick stainless with a walnut insert; and a round walnut table with a rotating turntable.
