LUXURIOUS CUSTOM KITCHEN
LUXURY ON THE LINKS
This kitchen is every kitchen designer's dream, fusing form and function to create a kitchen where unique functionality meets exquisite visual appeal
In a traditional kitchen, the pantry silos ingredients away from the work space, interrupting a cook’s flow and distracting from the process. We turn that convention inside out, segmenting this kitchen into specific zones for each discipline: prep, baking, stove top, sous vide – even beverages – eliminating the traditional pantry.
Without the pantry, each zone houses every respective ingredient, spice, utensil, appliance or tool needed for that specific process, start to finish. In some cases, this required duplication between stations, we considered it worthwhile, removing any distraction from the flow.
“If you are mindful of your own kitchen, you can build your pantry around you at your fingertips, but it does take effort and the right mindset.”
Many designers steer clear of marble in the kitchen, but we love the personality marble develops as signs of wear and tear etch over time.
We selected the elegant surface for every feature of the kitchen -- surfaces, counter-tops, stove hood, but most of all panels. Sliding marble panels throughout the kitchen accommodate the cooking zones, hiding extensive spice and herb storage, providing additional prep space, then sliding back to allow natural light to pour through an expansive window preserved in the renovation.

“Other people had a hard time seeing my vision when they looked at the original kitchen. I had to remove a laundry room and powder room, close off a wall, remove a window and add a feature wall in the process, but in the end, it was clear this was the layout it should have been from the beginning.”
