Los Gatos, CA

Our instructions from the client were to "create a fiercely modern, all-white kitchen, but one with humanity."

Working within a ten by fifteen-foot space that was originally dark, cramped and inefficient, we created a new kitchen, which is bright, open, and highly efficient. While no walls were moved, the openings to adjacent spaces were relocated and resized, further expanding the appearance of the space. Axial alignment was the order of the day. The door from the kitchen to the garage was relocated into the adjacent dining room. The result is a kitchen with increased counter space utilizing base cabinets with drawers. The space feels dramatically larger than it really is. Window coverings feature exposed brackets and bottom rails in satin aluminum.

Humanity is incorporated into the space by artwork, garden vistas and abundant natural light pouring through the dramatically enlarged skylight.
