A classic cook’s kitchen that also provides kitchen dining with a direct connection to the patio and terrace gardens. In the new design, we added new windows, French doors and skylights to bring in more natural light while the mahogany island defines new work centers; two sink/water locations, high-performance equipment, and ample countertops for multiple cooks to use at one time. In a modern take that uses simple, classic components - we applied a mix of white, earth brown, and gray in porcelain tile, Cararra marble, painted cabinetry, butcher block and Cambria counter tops - to suggest grandmother’s old, French kitchen.
