Grand Central

By moving the flow of traffic and setting up zones for specific tasks, the kitchen transformed into a stylish space suited for both cooking and entertaining. The island is a self-contained prep station with a vegetable sink, roomy storage and a butcher block surface, making it the hardest- working part of the kitchen. The peninsula directs traffic around the working area of the kitchen and provides seating as well as additional prep space. A banquette created smart seating by saving space and creating more storage below with drawers. A desk (“command central” as the client refers to it) was incorporated between the kitchen, front entry and back patio so the owner can manage the house while working.
