2nd Place Award Winner KDC 2010-12
This home was designed for clients in their new home downtown. A love for cooking and entertaining guided all of the design decisions. Modern simplicity was the goal.
The kitchen sits on a very large open space that includes living and dining rooms and a spectacular central staircase. Each section of this open design necessarily needed to harmonize with each other and the whole. Designed along two axis', the kitchen has symmetry and harmony. The primary axis is the centre of the fridge "niche". Here two Sub-Zero 700 Series units are ideally located for the kitchen layout and are visually completely unobtrusive with their cabinet finishes.The third part of the fridge installation is an oven tower with matching fronts and a pocket door that covers the two. Items that could not be integrated are maintaining the harmony of that trip-tich. The "bridge" around the fridge installation is repeated for the Wolf 48” Dual Fuel Range in a symmetrical installation on the second axis of the kitchen. A polished stainless steel hood completes an elegant installation of this section.
The third main part of the harmony is the niche for the dish pantry. It is aligned in height with the top of the fridges and range hood and features matching polished stainless steel doors. The trip-tich motif is repeated in three additional areas: 3 cabinets for the fridge section, 3 open shelves for display uppers & 3 polished stainless steel framed cabinets. Driftwood finished oak flooring was used throughout the open
"space. White cabinets are a continuation of the wall colour and contrasted with the rich oak used for the island cabinet. Symmetrical sink and dishwasher installations are used on the 14'-9"" island. All of the components of the open plan are strong and harmonize with each other, but it is this kitchen that is centre stage.
