space: Ground floor renovation and kitchen installation.

design objectives: The renovation of this kitchen, dining room and entrance of this charming early seventies suburban back-split, thoroughly changed the way the spaces related with one another. Separating walls were removed between each of the spaces to create a single space with subtle delineations. Solid oak flooring was installed to match existing while porcelain tile was set flush near the front and rear entrances. The a unique Arts and Crafts / Shaker style door was used to reflect the spirit of the Ranch Style exterior of the house. The proportioning and white finish of the upper cabinet doors channel the spirit of craftsmen and the architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Flush panel lowers form their own rhythm and texture through the accentuation of horizontal proportion and robust hardware. A triumvirate of materials where used for the counters to suit the uniqueness of location and purpose.

materials: Lacquered NFA (no formaldehyde added) MDF cabinet doors. Granite, maple and stainless steel counters, oak floors, ceramic tile.
