Light Transitional Kitchen by Roger Wade DeWeese

Sub-Zero and Wolf's 2010-2012 Kitchen Design Contest: Regional Winner Award.

The existing kitchen in a historic Craftsman Bungalow was narrow and dark limiting activities and had one side door to the rear terrace. Since the kitchen becomes a gathering place, the home owner wanted room for cooking, sitting, and better flow for dinners and parties.

Our design team proposed expanding the kitchen into a small adjacent room and also incorporating some of a hall which provided space for a large central island with counter seating, a breakfast area banquette, a small desk/office, stacked washer/dryer and a buffet for supporting the formal dining room. Custom cabinetry, with Craftsman detailing, and soapstone countertops conceal pullouts for recycling and trash sorting, electronics and a/v components, built-in flat screen television w/home theater speaker system, a fold away ironing board as well as efficient storage for groceries, dishes and cookware.

The layout provides activity alcoves around the perimeter of the open central gathering space. Two exterior glass French doors open the kitchen to the terrace allowing more flow through the space during entertaining. Windows have sleek silver and white woven solar shades complimenting stainless appliances and modern furnishings. The breakfast banquette has upholstered seats with storage. An original built-in hutch was restored to become a focal point of the new space.
