Lake Side Kitchen, Naples, ME
Two existing gable roofs came together at the intersection of the kitchen and family room, making the wish of “opening up” two adjacent spaces a structural challenge.
We reconfigured the existing kitchen space to include an expanded opening to the adjacent family room. The design of a portal with a gentle arch, and detailed wood slat finish, made up for the low ceiling. On the stairwell to the loft, the design of a “paddle” balustrade fit the motif.
The color red was introduced on the family room side to accent the white wood walls and ceiling. A new wine bar was created with the added benefit of accommodating a tall pantry cabinet for kitchen storage. Upper glass cabinets add texture and interest to the space.
