The work of the Greene and Greene brothers represents the pinnacle in American Bungalow Style architecture of the Arts and Crafts period. Occasionally, an existing home presents exciting opportunities for expanding upon this style. This kitchen embodies the soul of Greene and Greene interiors. Located at the center of the house, it opens into the surrounding rooms. Our design embraces the "room within a room" concept. Large, inviting openings blend the kitchen with the adjacent areas, while preserving a focused work environment.
The details developed in the kitchen are carried into the surrounding rooms, establishing the continuity between the spaces. The resulting environment is an artistic expression of warmth, purpose, craftsmanship, and durability. This is the view from the dining area, looking out over the serving piece. The low furniture creates a soft delineation of spaces, and directs the flow of traffic, but was intended primarily for functional serving and storage. Project # 6130.6 Photograph: Phillip Beaurline
