After deciding to build their dream home in Scarsdale, NY, the homeowners for this 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. 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.

A specific obstacle of this modern kitchen project was rooted in the fact that the kitchen was being designed as a priority. In some ways the sky was the limit, but in others, there were constraints. The kitchen design needed to be such that it would make sense with the overall home once it was designed and built. The lines of its architecture needed to be in sync with the architecture of the rest of the residence, both inside and outside of the home. As a result, our designers got to work directly with the home’s architect to ensure a smooth mingling of designs.

The homeowners, who are both professionals and have three children, are very interested in modern Italian kitchen design and modern architecture. 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. An exciting design element in this modern kitchen is a window that allows for gazing outdoors while cooking. The space is filled with natural light, and further brightness was achieved through using natural walnut wood veneer and high-gloss white lacquer for finishes throughout the space. White corian was used on half-inch-thick countertops.

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 features a dining area separate of the kitchen island, which has a round table and dining seating.
