Dramatic Transitional Kitchen by Joel Kelly

Sub-Zero and Wolf 2013-2014 Kitchen Design Contest: 2nd Place Transitional Kitchen. "Ultimately, we wanted to do something we hadn&rsquot seen before." The client needed a kitchen that would be open most of the time, yet could be closed off for formal entertaining. She required maximum storage, as she was downsizing from a large house to a townhome. And given her considerable art collection, she wanted a space that would be beautiful and artistic in and of itself. Joel had to create a kitchen that simultaneously acted as a focal point and disappeared into the background. So he designed a steel and glass wall the length of the kitchen, with reflective and transparent qualities that evoked the modernist architecture of prominent art museums and offices. The wall also allowed him to control the sights, sounds and smells of the kitchen, for those times when the client was entertaining. To provide the maximum amount of storage, the kitchen has full-height cabinets and a ladder/rail system that allows access to even the highest cabinets. A 48" Wolf dual fuel range has the sleek, industrial look that fits with the design direction of the kitchen, while a custom-designed hood form adds to the dramatic feel. The Sub-Zero refrigerator's configuration allows it to hide under the cabinetry. Sleek as this kitchen is, it is definitely not sterile. Much of its artful effect comes from the choice of finishes – the herringbone parquet flooring, and its bold, swirling marble countertops.
