Elegant Contemporary Kitchen by Savena Doychinov
2011 NKBA Design Competition - Best Before and After: Kitchen
The new design was intended to create a better connection to the dining room, and den. An essential part of this was eliminating the issue with traffic jams in the hallway. The designer created a distinctive architectural cohesion to surrounding spaces and the result was a well-integrated space. Additional ingredients include an eating area and the incorporation of unique and subtle Asian touches. Unique cherry ledges and full height countertop brackets were incorporated and a double-sided ledge that intersects the vertical opening between the kitchen and dining room. The driftwood stain on rift cut white oak floor, and honed Pietra grey stone countertops serve as a cool balance to warmer brick and wall colors. Seven openings into the kitchen make this space the heart of the home.
