We are fortunate to continue working with clients who want something unique for their living spaces. In this project we combined a mix of modern elements with some subtle finish decisions to build what stands as a beautiful kitchen. Working in Fells Point wasn't too shabby either, particularly being down the street from Tortilleria Sinaloa, one of our favorite taco joints in Charm City.
Here is a final pic of the kitchen upon completion.
When we started this project, the area you see above where the windows are, was a sitting room, right behind the existing kitchen. Our goal was to blow out this wall and design a layout that gave the homeowner more space. Below are the initial renderings put together by Four Twelve to tackle the project.
Given the existing space, a proposed layout for a galley kitchen worked perfectly. Working alongside the homeowner we selected our finishes and were off to the races.
We decided to do two-toned cabinets - using white doors for the island and gray doors for the cabinets surrounding the fridge and the stove. We were able to reuse the existing appliances and add a pot filler and stainless range hood. We also went with a white glass subway tile for the backsplash, which completed the whole look quite well.
For the counters we used a stone called Callacutta Classique. On the far side of the island we cut the stone with sharp geometric styled edges to create a modern look. We also finished the back panel of the island with recycled lathe from an old Baltimore rowhome. This was a fun piece to make and gives this modern kitchen the warmth of wood while still maintaining industrial stylings.
