Welcome to 21st Century
This kitchen was spacious by New York City standards, but not exactly space-age when it came to its design. Untouched since the early 1980s, it was a virtual time-capsule of obsolete technology, and its nondescript white cabinets and wooden counters had seen better days. To bring things up to modern standards and inject a touch of sophistication, we abandoned white for walnut, wood for golden limestone and a touch of aqua upholstery for fresh contrast. With these more refined materials and improved cabinetry design (courtesy of SPG Architects), the kitchen reads more like a stylish bar, but still functions as a modern chef’s kitchen.
