This chef's kitchen is open and sleek, with a commercial gas range, custom stainless steel vent hood and broad marble backsplash that harmonizes with the home's white color palette. A large center island features a contrast finish, while an eat-in area takes advantage of the large windows and picturesque view. Custom shades can be lowered for privacy or to screen the sunlight.
It’s hard to imagine now, but this charming living space was once an unassuming commercial garage. To make the most of the compact, 1,260-square-foot space (including an upstairs loft area), Frazier Associates minimized the number of walls within. Exposed brick walls and concrete flooring on the first floor were retained and a new staircase, crafted of reclaimed wood and metal railing, was designed for access to the second floor. "Providing more natural light was the biggest design challenge," say the designers. "A new recessed patio was designed behind the historic garage doors to allow for more light on the first floor, as well as to create a front entrance and a small exterior seating area."
This chef-style kitchen is laid out to maximize prep space for cooking; visually, the sense of immense space was heightened by using three different types of engineered stone for the backsplash, the countertop and the island topper. The neutral background is broken with a dash of bright orange in the light fixtures.
In this chef's grade kitchen, a hand-painted backsplash creates a graphic backdrop. Caesar Stone countertops and a professional series Sub Zero refrigerator add commercial kitchen sturdiness to a home kitchen.
A swath of bright purple graces one plane of this modern home's exterior, drawing attention to a side garden. The renovated house features a commercial garage door, metal siding and new exterior lighting.
