M. and L. are newlyweds, and they are also both grandparents. Goals in this project included room for 2 cooks and lots of storage for the kitchen gear of 2 households. We combined the original kitchen and a small laundry/breakfast room.
In this long view from the dining room, you can see how much counter space and storage has been packed into a relatively small footprint. The overall effect is contemporary, airy, full of light, and a pleasant place to cook or to chat with the cook.
