project: Kitchen renovation, Limehouse, Ontario.

design objectives: The character of the house and the needs of a busy and growing family dictated much of the design direction for this warm and open kitchen. The client wanted a kitchen that was a highly efficient workspace yet was comfortable for frequent entertaining and their casual lifestyle. Much of the house is constructed using reclaimed or salvaged pine timbers, which create the feel of an historic farmhouse while the style of the kitchen helps it harmonized with the adjoining dining room and the home as a whole. The clients chose to make their kitchen more accessible to there three young daughters with touches such as wicker fruit bins, a 32" pastry stone/prep area, under counter microwave and cabinets that were designed to contain the kids dishes and utensils.

materials: Post catalyzed satin lacquered mdf and maple, oiled cherry, honed impala granite
