Residential Kitchen Over $120,000

Residential Kitchen Over $120,000
National Winner
Airoom Architects & Builders
Lincolnwood, Ill.
The kitchen in this 1950s lakefront home was a mass of small work areas that lacked functionality.
The existing footprint of the first floor was kept intact but reconfigured so the previous dining room space became the new kitchen. To accommodate people coming in from the beach through the kitchen, two islands were created: One for the main seating area and one forming an entertaining base opposite a drinks area and near the door. The large windows were replaced with French doors for ease of beach access.
Original mouldings were duplicated and an embossed tin ceiling was added. Display cabinets are balanced on either side of the kitchen, complementing the cabinets in the drinks area.
Wherever possible, the appliances, including a steamer drawer, were integrated into the cabinets.
