What would typically be a standard kitchen renovation became a challenging project in the face of a global pandemic. Long lead times for the custom-made Italian cabinetry and an elevator renovation in the building created roadblocks, causing the project to get off to a slow start. With a lot of patience and trust in our team, these flexible clients were able to get their dream kitchen.
The primary goal was to open up the 1960s-era apartment to create continuity between the kitchen and other living areas. To do this, we removed several of the original walls, integrated the flooring, and built a custom peninsula for entertaining guests.
Custom floating shelves that wrap around the hood contribute to the open feeling of the new space. The floating shelf motif continues above the peninsula with shelving for stemware. Below, the built-in cabinetry anchors one end of the peninsula, providing valuable storage. The use of mixed materials between the shelves and countertop perfectly integrates the elements of the peninsula.
An adjacent bar nook continues the utilization of mixed materials to further tie the space together. Illuminated shelving provides sophisticated functional lighting, accenting the white countertop with floating maple shelves above.
