Mid Century Elegance - A Modern Kitchen

I'm in the kitchen all day long, not cooking but designing!  I'm a designer with Studio Snaidero in CT and participate in the planning and design of some amazing homes throughout New England.  There are quite a few projects from the past two years that need to be photographed so hopefully I'll have some more beautiful projects to share in the next few months! Last week, I was lucky enough to catch this stunning kitchen on a beautiful fall afternoon.  
As much as I like the design stages of working on a project, I think I like walking into the finished room almost more.  Every project is a collaboration between us the designers and a variety of people.  Some projects have more parts than others.  This project involved the home owners, architects and builders which ends up being a fair amount of people who each have their own requirements.  Needless to say I was thrilled when I walked in the space and saw how all of the parts came together in such a natural and organic way that fit with the home!
There was a lot that needed to fit in this narrow (yet long) space.  The list is pretty standard for one of our kitchens: 30" double ovens, 36" gas cook top, 48" refrigerator, microwave, wine refrigerator, ice maker, a large double bowl sink & lots of storage.

There ended up being a lot of useful storage in the kitchen.  The island offers a key amount!  There are two drawers on the ends that are 4 feet long and one in the center that is 3 feet long.  Above the ovens behind closed doors is vertical try storage.  Below the microwave are internal drawers that sit cleanly behind 1 solid door.  At the end of the tall units sits a narrow pantry that holds necessary cleaning supplies.  
Glass sliders open up to allow a flow outside.  Keeping with an organic feel the cabinets are oak and the counters are slate. This particular style has an integrated handle that contributes to the clean feel of the room.  The handless style also works well since we were working in a narrow space and hardware would just get in the way.  A glass backsplash gently reflects the outside as well as makes for easy clean-up!

I hope you enjoyed this little tour!  Studio Snaidero is located at 18 South Main Street in South Norwalk, CT.  If you're in the area and thinking about taking on a kitchen project stop by and take a look!
