A 30‐foot wall of storage frees up cooking areas also counters for food prep plus entertaining conventional kitchens reign supreme in this particular suburb of Philadelphia. also that's exactly what this family of four didn't want.
So finding a local designer to do something different proved challenging. "They didn`t get what we were beholding for" says one of the homeowners. "We wanted someone who could think outside the box a little bit."
They wanted something plus well the opposite of rustic. They wanted "all the cliche things also like clean lines an open ground plan plus all white with no top cabinets," the owner says. So they searched for house professionals on Houzz plus came across general contractor Brian Osborne.
"He just got us," the owner says. Osborne with his team of designers as well as fabricators helped modernize the space by integrating a 30‐foot black walnut wall of storage that took all the pressure off the cooking stations with hangout areas to create an incredibly spacious as well as airy kitchen.
The cabinet fortification a collaboration between Osborne the owners, C2 Architecture Loubier Design in‐conjunction with Kole Made is 30 feet lengthy together with 8 feet big. "It`s like a furniture pantry," Osborne says. "There´s endless real estate to store things." The wall helps keep the rest of the space open together with airy.
There´s area for plates also serving platters with food also even a Sonos stereo system housed in a slide–out shelf. At the far end is a homework station for the kids with at the other is a alcove that creates a buffet–style table that often acts as a cocktail station.
Osborne mocked up a few designs in which the sink was under the window, but that meant the owners will have been sequestered in the corner doing dishes or washing vegetables. To get them in the area more it made sense to put the fall in the island, where the dishwasher is now located too.
BEFORE: The old kitchen was all folded into a corner, making those who were cooking feel like they always had their back to family plus guests. as well as everybody the cabinetry added to the crowded feel for the owners.
AFTER: Now there are only a few floating shelves in―conjunction with some undercabinets, freeing up the space. "A big also bright wide–open kitchen is what they always wanted," Osborne says.
