In the kitchen, we turned the dark, closet-like original layout into an open, cozy space. A new island defines the kitchen without closing it off and provides informal dining.

Note from the Architect

Removing a portion of the rear kitchen visually tied the space to the loft above. Shifting and enlarging the staircase allowed us to incorporate built-in bookshelves along the entire stair. Along with providing storage for our clients' ample collection of art and books, the new shelving invites frequent movement between the two levels.
