Capitol Hill residence: creative kitchen for a creative cook

The client challenge was clear: within 1,000 square feet, create a “grand room” to house an expansive kitchen, casual eating area, and family room. But this wasn’t to be just any kitchen. It was a kitchen for passionate cook and baker who wanted a traditional, functional work space with an eclectic design twist. The result was a mix of refined walnut and maple casework cabinets coordinated with very rustic white oak casework. The floor: rustic white oak with a stained and waxed finish. High-end commercial refrigeration and range appliances were also installed.

Of special construction note: This project required a high level of site supervision thanks to the level of design finish (as well as to the fact the family lived in the house during construction). As is always true, an exceptionally clean and organized job site helped achieve great results.
