Kitchen renovation, Hornby, Ontario.
design objectives: The programme for this kitchen required
a highly functional kitchen with clean lines and a minimum of clutter.
To achieve this, the kitchen was opened to the adjoining dining
room, a continuous ceiling was created to maximizing the illusion
of space, and a large pantry was built around the stainless
steel fridge, thus creating a "garde manger".
All the veneer was taken from a single flitch of quarter sawn white
oak to give continuity to the grain of the panels throughout the
kitchen. Careful selection of other materials gives a cool, crisp
feel while still lending a air of richness.
materials: Rift cut white oak,
stainless steel, coby ebony slate, Corian, sandblasted glass.
