2019-2021 KDC Finalist
The renovation of a kitchen in this heritage-protected home on a beautiful tree-lined old city street could not be expanded any wider or longer to increase the size of the room. Designer Jack Creasy cleverly used color, especially a rich black for the pantry and refrigerator cabinetry, to draw the eye up to accentuate the height of the room. Because the kitchen is a high-traffic space between the living and dining rooms, it needed to have visual impact. He designed a custom metal range hood and a 3-sided marble waterfall island to be the main focal points upon entering the room.

With a 10-foot ceiling to work with, the design team took advantage of the vertical space for off-season storage and maximizing hidden appliance storage. The Sub-Zero 36” Designer Refrigerator/Freezer was specifically chosen so it could seamlessly blend into the armoire-style cabinetry. Reminiscent of a traditional apothecary, the fridge pantry armoire features 24 apothecary-style drawers that conceal the freezer drawers. Incorporating classic, clean lines in traditional details with bold, dramatic colors, the kitchen now feels current, fresh, and sophisticated.
