Timeless White Design

To play up the light and the home's traditional decor, architects Stuart Cohen and Julie Hacker pair classic white cabinets and crown molding with marble countertops and a rich wood floor.

Kitchen With a View

In order to allow for maximum view of the gardens outside, Cohen and Hacker create upper cabinets with glass backings.

Streamlined Style

A sleek island hood is used in place of a traditional-style hood in order to continue the amazing garden views.

Transitional Breakfast Area

One of the homeowners' requests was to open the kitchen up to the newly redesigned breakfast area, which features a large eating area and extra storage.
