  • ARCHITECT:SPG Architects

After deciding to build their dream home in Scarsdale, NY, the homeowners for this stunning modern kitchen project decided that they wanted to prioritize the kitchen. As a result, they started conversations with our kitchen designers before they engaged an architect, in this case SPG Architects. Their goal was to build the kitchen of their dreams and then figure out what type of a home could be built around it. Obviously, the project was exhilarating for our designers.

This kitchen features an island with countertop seating, tall and high-volume pantries, and a retractable door on the tall unit for small appliances. The kitchen also accommodates a dining area separate of the modern kitchen island, which has a round table and dining seating. An exciting design element in this modern kitchen is the huge window front that allows the chef and guests alike for gazing outdoors while cooking or spending time in the kitchen. The space is filled with natural light, and further brightness was achieved through the use of natural walnut wood veneer and high-gloss white lacquer as the kitchen cabinet finishes throughout the kitchen and interior space. White Corian was used for the half-inch-thick kitchen countertops.

The homeowners, who are both professionals and have three children, are very interested in modern Italian kitchen design and contemporary architectural designs. A clean, open kitchen space was designed to embrace their stylistic preferences and create a space that was functional enough to accommodate a young and busy family. A positive challenge of this modern kitchen project was rooted in the fact that the kitchen was being designed as a priority, or as a source of inspiration for the rest of the home. In some ways the sky was the limit, but in others, there were certain constraints to be considered prior to starting with the kitchen design process.

The kitchen design needed to be such that it would make sense and integrate flawlessly with the overall home once finally being designed and built. The lines of the home’s architecture needed to be in synchronization with the architecture of the rest of the modern residence, both inside and outside of the home. As a result, our kitchen designers got to work directly with the home’s architect, which were SPG Architects, to ensure a smooth mingling of designs.
