Elegant Contemporary Kitchen by Carlos Prio-Touzet

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

This project was designed for an Inventor and an Engineer couple. They had an original Sub-Zero refrigerator over 20 years old that was still functioning perfectly. This Sub-Zero set the standard they wanted "Beautiful, functional and built to last at least 30 years". We decided that the wall where the cooking would happen ("the fire wall") would be a modern riff on the idea of a giant cooking hearths found in great chateaus. Wolf stoves and ovens was the only brand that met our high design and technology standards. The Bronze hood was custom designed by us. For added warmth, we chose a book-matched walnut veneer with Nanz bronze hardware. They wanted to display their collectibles yet hide the everyday messes that come with living with kids. We gave them floating display shelves for their collectibles and designed an "appliance garage" to hide the tools of everyday living. The custom island in the center a huge 8' cantilever in granite. This is the center where everything happens. They have built legos, done myriads of science projects with their kids and yet, with the right chandelier dimmed down - it works beautifully as an elegant spot to entertain and host an elegant event.
