Light Contemporary Kitchen by Germán Brun

NKBA's 2014 Design Competition Winner: Budget-Friendly Kitchen

Co-Designer: Lizmarie Esparza

The kitchen in this 1941 cottage was located uncomfortably far from the rest of the house, as a result of certain unsuccessful home additions. In the new, centrally located kitchen designed for a young couple, the overall aesthetic was inspired by the days of early pioneers. Elements such as alligator-patterned porcelain, rustic beechwood butcher-block, a white farmhouse sink, and vintage-style filament light fixtures, employ an antique material vocabulary within a modern design language.

This kitchen features an inexpensive, rustic butcherblock counter that contrasts with the modern white cabinetry. Wrapped butcher-block is also integrated around the upper cabinets and island, contributing to the consistency in design. A doubled breakfast island increases counter space, while also providing additional storage with the concealed lower cabinets. Dark porcelain plank-format floors throughout the house emphasize and complete the subtle and natural feel created in the kitchen, while allowing continuity and integration with adjacent rooms. The economical marriage of modernity and antiquity truly does impress!
