The family hosts a lot of gatherings, and therefore wanted a space where they could host guests and remain in contact with their guests even while in the kitchen preparing a meal. For day to day use, the family wanted to be able to essentially use the family room while being physically in this high-end kitchen. It was important to the family that no matter where one was in their new Italian high-end kitchen, eye contact with the television in the family room was possible.
Because the family is very active and youthful and also enjoys hosting a lot of dinner parties and other gatherings, it was important to create a great deal of efficiency in the custom kitchen. To address this desire, Modiani created two working stations and installed two sinks – one beneath a window on an outer wall and one within the island in the center of the kitchen. The island also features extra counter space so that family members could sit for a quick meal at the island, a feature that was very important to this on-the-go family. Modiani installed two pull out pantries and additional cabinetry in the dining area of the family room, creating a great deal of storage space for the family.
