KBDA 2016 Gold Winner,
The client, a mother and professional caterer, sought a space where she could cater and entertain at home. This demanded that the comfort and warmth of a family home be balanced with the industrial-commercial needs of a professional kitchen. We outfitted the space with upgraded appliances, specially seeking out pieces with a homestyle feel. The range hood, double wall oven, microwave drawer, and deep stainless steel double sink offer functionality and a professional edge for the client’s catering work. Meanwhile, a wine cooler and custom-designed lighting set the scene for entertaining guests. Custom built-in shelving displays the client’s pottery collection, offering a personal touch. Warm details such as generous natural light, natural wood flooring, and a bookshelf embedded in the kitchen island, offer elements of comfort and familiarity, with the white color palette creating an airy, light, and welcoming feel.
