In this Far Hills, NJ home, the walls in the kitchen feature serious angles. The back wall and the right side wall each have about a twenty-degree angle, creating walls that are not straight and cannot accommodate modern Italian kitchen cabinetry or appliances the way a straighter, more typical wall might. In order to draw the eye away from this visual inconsistency, the designers at Modiani worked to move all of the weight – literal and visual – of the kitchen away from these walls and to the center of the room.

In the center of the kitchen, two modern kitchen islands were installed. One island is used as a cooking area, and one is used as a work space or seating area. To the left side of the kitchen, the refrigerator was installed in a space that was once used as a closet, keeping a solid visual line along that wall. To maximize the use of this space, the refrigerator also features a freezer and wine cooler. To the right side of the room, the stove and pantry were installed. In order to maintain the triangular shape that the angle in the ceiling naturally creates, two columns were created around these elements rather than having the elements extend fully upwards toward the ceiling.
