Casual Country/Rustic Kitchen by Kent Lineberger

Sub-Zero and Wolf's 2010-2012 Kitchen Design Contest. Tucked into the curves of a stream and adjoined to a state park with views of Grandfather Mountain, the site for this new home in North Carolina brings to mind the spectacular setting of Frank Lloyd Wright's iconic Falling Water. The owners are avid art collectors who live most of the year in Houston, but wanted a summer retreat to invite an extended clan of friends and family for large gatherings where everyone would feel at home—especially in the kitchen. Architect Kent Lineberger created multiple work zones along one seamless piece of stainless steel where two large sinks, two dishwashers, and two separate sets of trash and recycling cabinets give everyone room to work. An island beverage area divides kitchen from hallway and family room and displays locally woven baskets specially commissioned for the display niches. Other indigenous touches inside include Poplar bark shingles, old growth Eastern White pine flooring, and local stone across the cooking wall that matches the exterior stone. A visit to their local Living Kitchen convinced the couple that a Wolf 60-inch gas range with French top and S-shape grates would be perfect. Positioning an integrated Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer together in a tall cabinet is another detail that gives the space its inviting appeal.
