The dramatic transformation of a traditional kitchen breaks new ground in terms of materials and ingenuity. Architect Scarlett Breeding and designer Richard Anuszkiewicz removed existing walls to create a large space for dining, cooking and relaxing. A long island in washed German oak creates badly needed workspace. Paneling adds architectural definition and conceals storage areas. Custom base cabinetry was fabricated to match the La Cornue range, and armoire-style refrigeration resembles furniture. A co-planar door panel slides open to reveal an under-counter microwave. The pièce de résistance:
a Caesarstone countertop handmade with semi-precious Dumortierite—chosen for the homeowner who has an affinity for the color blue.
