Joni Zimmerman and architect Cathy Purple Cherry collaborated on an innovative, two-zone kitchen in Annapolis.

Large Kitchen—Third Place

In a classically detailed waterfront project near Annapolis designed by architect Cathy Purple Cherry, kitchen designer Joni Zimmerman created the main kitchen that houses the most-used appliances and prep surfaces and a pantry kitchen that operates as a coffee center and area to stash dirty dishes when the owners are entertaining. The two sections are divided by a furniture-like hutch, tucked between columns that separate the spaces without blocking backyard views.

The main kitchen flows into the family room; a beverage center acts as a room divider and glassware is stored on the backside of the island. A walk-in pantry closet provides storage.

Zimmerman worked with interior designer Arlene Critzos to create an aesthetic in keeping with the house. Traditional white cabinetry contrasts with a dark-stained island that matches the hutch. Granite countertops and a high-gloss ceramic-tile backsplash complement the cabinetry. An inviting breakfast area occupies a bay window in the main kitchen.
