Designer Christy Bowen of Twelve Stones Design and David and Christopher Davison of Realty Restoration came face to face with one of their greatest design challenges: the awkwardly angled, cramped kitchen of a large family with several needs.
The entire home had 45-degree angles between each room it seamed – forming a diamond-shaped kitchen.
Even with adequate square footage, the kitchen’s layout overlapped the entertainment area and the cooking area and left the client without space for storage or space to prep.
By using these angles and the roofline peak, the team constructed a 135-degree, angle-barreled ceiling.
Classic-cut stone arches and wood beams blend with linear stacked stone to add modernity to a primarily traditional design.
To accommodate the owner’s request for a single island large enough to seat 10, the team mirrored the ceiling shape with the island.
The Brazilian granite countertop, which covers a significant amount of space, inspired the color palette.
While housing the client’s gourmet cooking appliances, the dark-stained cherry wood and painted maple wood cabinets also lighten the space.
