Sub-Zero and Wolf's 2010-2012 Kitchen Design Contest. Darien, Connecticut is acclaimed for its high standard of living and location on Long Island Sound, so when this family with three children needed to refine their living situation, they decided to build anew. During the evenings the family, along with various groups and friends, congregate at the home to cook and share dinner. Observing a strong central line from the front door to the terrace's glass doors, designer Lindy Weaver positioned a large table and chairs on the line to make it even more pronounced. Clutter is concealed with a two-door pantry that hides small appliances and three desks with cabinetry that hides printers and files. Here, the children do homework under mom and dad's watchful eyes. With a bank of windows and doors, Weaver had only eight feet of wall space to work with, so she installed two islands, making the interior food prep island a few inches shorter to create visual separation. The island also houses Sub-Zero undercounter refrigerator, Sub-Zero wine refrigeration, and a microwave. Weaver employed continuity in all the wood cabinetry and honed limestone to achieve the tranquil feel. Sunday mornings the dad loves to make pancakes for the family on the the Wolf 60-inch grill, which Weaver suggested for its bold aesthetic that created more symmetry in the design, French top that can double as more counter space, and two full-size ovens that make the most of the room's limited wall space.
