Style: Modern  ·  Location: South Hill

This 1970’s home had never been touched.

The kitchen was completely separated from the living and dining rooms and with two small children that just wouldn’t work for this family. We removed the demising walls and creating the desired open floor plan. In order to change the context of the 12 foot rock fireplace (versus changing the rock), materials were chosen to enhance this dated rock and bring it into modern times. Laminate cabinetry in a similar tone to the rock was chosen not only for the look but also durability. A quartz counter containing 70% post-consumer recycled materials became a focal point by dropping the slab down the end of the island. Character grade white ash flooring was chosen to bring this modern kitchen back down to earth. The result was a space true to its architecture that provided excellent family function as well as entertaining with a touch of suburban styling.
