Creating a new kitchen for a client can be a challenging enough project. Imagine turning a 100-year-old warehouse into a private residence – which includes a stand-out kitchen, of course.
The family wanted to transform the a candy warehouse, built in the 1920’s, into a comfortable family home, yet retain as much of the building’s historical character as possible.
The kitchen is the focal point (and most special part) of the house. It opens to a large deck, and overlooks the central garden. The roof trusses, exposed brick walls and sky views give it a special character unlike any kitchen we’ve ever seen. Its most striking element is a sweeping 24-foot recycled wood island, which provides the kind of workspace, storage and seating that most home cooks only dream about. The key appliance is the Wolf 91 cm dual fuel range, which the client chose and fell in love with before the kitchen was even designed, so the look of the range and that of the Sub-Zero 91 cm over-and-under refrigerator strongly influenced the final look of the kitchen. They both fit in with the industrial aesthetics of the building that is a central part of the design.
