The goal for the Long Island project was a complete upgrade to give the clients a larger and more functional kitchen. The design team needed to provide better prep space, extra storage and room to entertain, while also giving the kids a place to do their homework. Another goal was to allow the clients to walk from the garage into a mudroom instead of straight into the kitchen.
A few challenges they faced were working within the existing footprint and finding space to work in a mudroom. They reframed the kitchen’s exterior wall in order to move windows and doors.
For flow and function, Cicada wanted the kitchen to remain open to the living room but needed to separate the two spaces. They accomplished that by adding beams to the kitchen ceiling and soffits for the beams. Built-in shelves were added to the custom hood for easy access to spices and oils. A custom table connects to the island as an extension.
To create a mudroom, they reclaimed part of a deeper third-bay garage and used it to create a landing space. A pocket door to the kitchen allows them to close off the space should it descend into disarray.
Cicada’s entertainment-friendly redesign provided the clients with casual dining, doubled storage and organization aids for their family of four.

The homeowners used their love of wood and natural elements to source unique wood materials for this home, using it throughout to showcase their design ideas. The goal was to create a show-stopping home that the homeowners could use as a personal showcase for their clients.

In the early concepts of the Oakmont, the design team focused on creating expansive common living areas with modern connectivity from one room to another. The plan uses subtle ceiling treatments and a large central vault to define the main-floor living room, kitchen and dining space.
