Accessible & Aesthetic

"This kitchen was designed for a noted Hollywood couple. The kitchen had to meet his high aesthetic standards while still relating stylistically to an older home full of antiques. She is visually challenged and needed a space with high-contrast elements and a desk area that would accommodate a large unattractive reading machine.

 

"The natural maple cabinets are in high contrast with the black uba tuba granite. Checkerboard cork flooring helps her to define the areas around her. All appliances selected have well-defined buttons or dials. The island, with stainless cooktop on the granite counter, further defines the step down to a semi-circular dining level with a maple top. A graceful curved backsplash divides the two levels. The desk area features a symmetrical tall unit with a large appliance garage in the center that houses her reading machine. Task and accent under-cabinet lighting (with dual controls), as well as strategically placed recessed ceiling lighting, is specifically designed to meet her comfort level of luminosity."
