WINNER GOHBA 2008 AWARD - Custom Kitchens – over 200 Sq.Ft

Our clients, both avid cooks, wished for a classic “triangle” kitchen for ease of use and efficiency when preparing meals. They also wished for a space that was well suited for entertaining, and had a simple and modern aesthetic. awards_kitchenoverThe resulting kitchen stands out with its custom glass backsplash lit by LED strip lighting that shifts between various colours throughout the day and night. Maple flat panel doors, trimmed with a 4” cherry border emphasize the strong horizontal and vertical geometry of the design.

The kitchen contains two built-in refrigerators with freezer drawers, a custom cookbook area with steel roll top covering, and a sink large enough to accommodate a baking tray. Glass artist Detlef Gotzens was called in to design a tempered recycled glass backsplash, and an island “bridge” of the same material. To complete the look, oiled 2” thick soapstone is used as countertop material, contrasting with the liquid quality of the glass and the warm glow of the wood.

The kitchen is separated functionally from the rest of the home by a custom rectangular wood clad structure that contains storage and an appliance garage on the side facing into the kitchen and a powder room on the side facing the hall. This feature unit gives the kitchen a strong architectural component and helps to further enhance the sharp geometry of the design.

The maple and cherry millwork is continued beyond the kitchen and throughout the entire ground floor, seamlessly integrating this stunning gem of a kitchen into this light filled contemporary home.
