The kitchen in this 1860’s Italianate style architecture home was unique in its layout, with extensive cabinetry throughout and unexpected surfaces found during renovations. Working with the client, the kitchen designer, and our team, we applied the best solutions for challenges presented. The existing interior space was small, so we reoriented the entrance, incorporated the mudroom into the entry area, exposed the interior stone wall, and rebuilt the porch with a new roof and entryway, emphasizing the natural light.
Inspiration for the tall linear cabinetry came from the mid 1800’s style door-style built-ins from the original dining room. With the cabinets already built when we discovered the stone wall, we created scribes, sculpting the edge profile of the cabinetry into the stone work. Decorative Edison style lighting added just the right detail, providing a beautiful ambience overall.
