Tailored Style: Specialty Room

A creative plan yields an elegant outcome

Whoever says that a pantry space should be hidden behind closed doors has not seen one as unique and finely detailed as this recently completed pantry in a renovated DC residence. Before they considered aesthetics, designers from Alt Breeding Associates had to remediate irregular geometries in the existing space, hide ductwork and accommodate a full-height wine cooler, ice maker and storage. They solved these dilemmas by concealing an HVAC return vent in the crown molding and installing a full-height cabinetry wall to house appliances and storage.

That left room for the sophisticated and chic material palette: a brass-and-stainless steel French sink; a brass soffit and wall surround with hidden storage; tall, high-gloss Premier Custom Built cabinets concealing pantry storage; and a full-height wine refrigerator. Brass Waterworks hardware and cabinet insets finish off the space.
