This 1960’s ranch in Fitchburg, MA had a kitchen with suspended cabinets and a very tiny work area. The suspended cabinets blocked the view of the large window looking at the backyard and made it difficult to visit with friends and family while working in the kitchen.
The homeowners were interested in having a kitchen where their extended family and friends could come and enjoy “hanging out” in the kitchen. We removed the suspended cabinets and installed an island where 4 to 5 people could “hang out” and talk to the cooks while they prepare the meal. We also added seating under the window by putting a very practical window seat. The window seat has drawers below for easy access seasonal storage.
We also made the cased opening to the dining room larger so when there is a very large gathering a couple of people can sit on stools looking into the kitchen. So now this once “small” kitchen with very limited seating can have several people visiting and yet not be bumping into those preparing the meals.
Сканди-кухня для молодой девушки в г. Обнинск, ЖК "Новый бульвар". Отказались от верхних шкафов, сделали акцент на фартуке. Решение по эргономике: - выдвижной посудосушитель;
- волшебный уголок;
- хоз. шкаф возле двери;
- столешница вместо подоконника.
Design Excellence Award winning kitchen.
The open kitchen and family room coordinate in colors and performance fabrics; the vertical striped chair backs are echoed in sofa throw pillows. The antique brass chandelier adds warmth and history. The island has a double custom edge countertop providing a unique feature to the island, adding to its importance. The breakfast nook with custom banquette has coordinated performance fabrics.

One of the nicest thing that can happen as an architect is that a client returns to you because they enjoyed working with us so much the first time round. Having worked on the bathroom in 2016 we were recently asked to look at the kitchen and to advice as to how we could extend into the garden without completely invading the space. We wanted to be able to "sit in the kitchen and still be sitting in the garden".
This beach house kitchen has been remodeled with new white shaker cabinets and Taj Mahal Quartzite countertops. We used a beautiful Walker Zanger Cafe 3x6 ceramic tile for the splash. The flooring was existing so we had to fit the footprint of the kitchen. The bar area has been finished with a Grothouse wood counter top.
