A Modern Mix

Award of Distinction - Large Kitchen

A Modern Mix While renovating a Potomac, Maryland, home, CARNEMARK was tasked with modernizing the outmoded kitchen with a contemporary sensibility. Designer Jonas Carnemark focused first on creating clear views outdoors through a newly added aluminum-and-glass curtain wall. He then relied on a mix of glass surfaces and glossy lacquered cabinetry by Konst SieMatic to create a sleek look.

Walls of white-lacquered cabinetry conceal pantry and china storage and fridge and freezer columns; two recessed niches feature ThinkGlass crystal counters and a matte glass backsplash. An agate gray-lacquered island with eco-friendly Paperstone countertops provides the work surface for the kitchen and houses the dishwasher, cooktop and sink. The white glass-tile floor required a new floor system to support its weight and ensure stability.
