Smart, Practical Island

An island with cooktop and secondary sink, placed close to the dishwasher and wall ovens, creates a practical cooking/clean-up zone with the refrigerator smartly set apart to keep work zones separated. Another goal was to have a place to perform culinary demonstrations. Photography by Eric Roth

Casual Eatery

An eating nook with the other side of the see-through display shelves turns a breakfast area into a place that can function for more substantial, even company meals. Views of the backyard were another criteria when the kitchen was expanded. Photography by Eric Roth
