The design team was tasked with updating this mid-century modern classic, while keeping the original integrity of the house as well as the existing materials. The architects worked closely with the owner to design a room that opened up to the other living and dining areas of the house. The existing kitchen had low ceilings, aging cabinetry and inadequate natural lighting.
Matching new walnut to the vintage walnut paneling in the adjacent room was a challenge. They explored vaulting the existing kitchen ceiling and cutting new openings into the living room. It was a priority of the owners to keep the existing blue tiling and walnut paneling in the living room. Grain-matched walnut was used throughout the kitchen with a stain to match the original paneling in other rooms. Quartzite counters and mosaic tiles were used as a nod to mid-century design. Clean modern lines were designed into the new casework to bring the kitchen up-to-date. New soffits wrapped in walnut were used to uplight the vaulted ceiling.
