This modern design was to create a space for a couple who loves to entertain. The Living lounge blurs the lines between kitchen and family shaping the way we live for the better. The custom and sustainable kitchen area has a warm lounge like atmosphere that disguises its utilitarian purpose. The lines of the custom natural wood cabinetry carries its cereused oak finish, calacatta porcelain slabs and modern light fixtures to the hearths lounging side- or maybe its vice versa. The design makes it hard to tell where one space ends and the next begins.  So sip a cocktail, make some appetizers with your guests and watch the kids play as this space opens up to custom playroom shelving. The biggest challenge for this project was dealing with existing mechanical units and the limited height of the space. Playing with the idea of a floating beamed ceiling tricked the eye and made the space appear larger.

An entertainer’s kitchen, pure simplicity with the importance of the human experience. This client lives in a traditional colonial home and lives a traditional lifestyle. However, with a stressful job she seeks simplicity in her home and hired me to design a warm modern experience. The kitchen’s ergonomic design allowed her to focus on the important things in life which is the enjoyment of family and friends.  The choice of sustainable stone materials cross pollinate from the kitchen into the living space so it feels like one big space to play, build and eat. The kitchen also involves smart technology ie faucet to make life easier for a client who loves to entertain.

Imagine Tessa walking into her kitchen. She pulls her favorite coffee cup out and puts it on top of the induction counter. “Good Morning Tessa, it will be sunny and 85 degrees today.” She taps the counter and proceeds to sip her coffee while looking out onto the projection of one of her favorite spots in the world, the Colorado Rockies. She is mindful of time, in one hour the back wall kitchen cabinetry will transform and open up into her workspace.  A pre-set zoom conference appears on the smart glass wall and Tessa begins her workday. 

Today, the kitchen is hailed as the heart of the home.  The Kitchen of the Future will nourish the mind, heart, body and planet, marrying technology and nature to create a self-sustainable space for healthy living. Through MAD’s signature lens Poetic Modernism®, new forms of human engagement within the kitchen will affect our brain, our senses, and impact our well-being.
