The clients at the offset said they were open to something drastic. With their children out of the house and a love of entertaining, the existing “country kitchen” no longer fit their lifestyle. After some work and numerous meetings we presented something drastic. One of the biggest goals for the project was to open up what was a dark, isolated and dated kitchen to the dining and living room. We did this by carving out an opening that wrapped around the corner and terminated with a slot wide enough to see through while standing at the sink. This keeps them connected but still hides any mess in the kitchen. The idea of wrapping planes carries through from the basement renovation that was completed prior to the kitchen demolition and on to the next phase of the project where we tackle the master suite.
