The shape of the space really required a different approach during the initial design phase. Ultimately, ditching the traditional work triangle for multiple, specialized zones was the best way to create an efficient space for day to day life as well as entertaining.

This award winning kitchen started with the gourmet appliances. The homeowners knew they wanted integrated Subzero refrigeration and a 72" La Cornue Grand Palais range. Figuring out the best place for those in such a uniquely shaped space meant splitting up the kitchen into two separate zones. From there we maximized the efficiency of each zone to make the space as functional as possible for this growing family.
Three inch thick mitered edges on the honed Calacatta Gold marble counters helps to add visual weight to the two islands. The light color contrasts with the custom navy cabinets, and the polished brass fittings and cabinet hardware add a glamorous, traditional flare. Rustic, reclaimed barnwood flooring, fluted farmhouse sinks, and polished nickel lanterns complete the modern French country look.
