The renovation to the Hart’s Run Kitchen was not just a simple redesign of the original layout: walls were removed, larger windows were installed, access to the rear deck was relocated, and the relationship between rooms reconfigured.
Place’s vision was to: reorient the cooking area; flood the space with light; create a better flow from the kitchen to the rest of the first floor; keep a connection with the existing family room; and transform an unused room into a breakfast area.

The palette of cut limestone, dark stained oak millwork, and stainless steel is continued in the kitchen to unify the spaces within the open floor plan. The walnut butcher block island is appointed with cubbies for cookbook stor-age.

Our Client's wanted to retain their existing gas range cooker so we designed the oak-veenered plywood kitchen around this.

“Excellent expression of shingle style as found in southern Maine. Exciting without being at all overwrought or bombastic.”
This shingle-style cottage in a small coastal village provides its owners a cherished spot on Maine’s rocky coastline. This home adapts to its immediate surroundings and responds to views, while keeping solar orientation in mind. Sited one block east of a home the owners had summered in for years, the new house conveys a commanding 180-degree view of the ocean and surrounding natural beauty, while providing the sense that the home had always been there. Marvin Ultimate Double Hung Windows stayed in line with the traditional character of the home, while also complementing the custom French doors in the rear.
The specification of Marvin Window products provided confidence in the prevalent use of traditional double-hung windows on this highly exposed site. The ultimate clad double-hung windows were a perfect fit for the shingle-style character of the home. Marvin also built custom French doors that were a great fit with adjacent double-hung units.
