This professional client, an IT specialist in San Francisco, wanted a sophisticated sociable, inviting space to enjoy with his family, friends, and colleagues. He wanted an Italian inspired – as he had fallen in love with Italian design during his trip to Italy. The client also wanted us to design the living area. This is so it all has one continuous flow with the Italian Renaissance Kitchen.
Having recently purchased his new home, we designed an Italian Renaissance Kitchen for the client. Through collaboration between Baruchi and the client’s contractors, the decision was made to remove some walls. And this would completely open up the kitchen space into one large, open-plan kitchen dining, and living area.
The feature of this kitchen is the island – with its minimal look with a wood l shaped wooden breakfast bar. It brings warmth to the kitchen and adds a natural element to the mix of materials. Baruchi wanted a minimal extractor hood – as an open-plan kitchen, the designer did not want the hood to be a prominent feature but rather a sleek, functional hood. The white tall units provide light and minimal backdrop to the kitchen. By using white color in the tall units, the wooden breakfast bar brings warmth. Plus, it brings the color palette of the white and grey island units. To continue the minimal look, we added floating units at the end of the room. To link the extra cabinetry and kitchen area- we used a walnut panel.
Overall, the result is light and a spacious, modern sophisticated kitchen space.
THE DESIGN CONCEPT
THE FINAL OUTCOME
LIVING ROOM STORAGE
First, we incorporated intelligent storage to include shelves and cupboards. Since the space needed to flow, it had to cater for multi-use. So, we made sure lots of storage is available.
