In consideration of the bumpout and mantle, it was decided that cabinets should be slightly recessed behind it to accentuate its form. In doing so, it made it a challenge for the designer to fit in a range deep enough to accommodate for the deepest counter/cabinetry. To resolve this, the designer put in a curved hood. In doing so, it connects itself without issue to the top of the cabinets, while providing ample ventilation and coverage for the range below. Abstractly, it also acts a gesture to a canopy!
