Classic Traditional Kitchen by Peter Salerno
2010 NKBA Design Competition - Large Kitchen: First Place
A classically elegant floor-to-ceiling hearth surrounding the cooking area provides a focal point between two expansive islands in this large kitchen. The soffit, which follows the outlined shapes of the islands, helps to visually define and divide the space. White linen cabinets with a chocolate glaze, along with cherry islands in a light mahogany stain and walnut glaze, create a comfortable approachability to the room. A commercial-grade cooktop is placed close to the spacious workstations, a sink, and a microwave incorporated into the islands. The granite island top balances the room's grand scale-conveyed by the chandelier, hearth, and ceiling height. The primary sink is positioned to allow a view of the courtyard and European fountain.
