As part of a multi-family residential building, the challenge was to reconfigure the kitchen within the confines of the existing footprint and give the homeowner additional storage space as well as a better functioning kitchen layout. Taking cabinets up to the ceiling maximizes use of the vertical space and provides additional storage. An existing, non-functioning chimney was modified to create custom shelving. Top-of-the-line appliances, high end finishes, improved task lighting and new heating and air units provide modern conveniences in the previously outdated space.
