OUR SOLUTIONS

We balanced formal order with a modern aesthetic. Placing a sunlit central island with oversized pendants and a contrasting back counter on the home’s main axis.

Heart of
the Home

A sunlit central island creates a central gathering place for meals and entertainment.

Dark wood cabinetry complements the home's traditional paneling.

THE RESULT

A closed off, service space that was once a detriment has been transformed to a new gathering spot at the center of the home.
