In the hands of EL Studio, a compartmentalized 1929 bungalow in Northwest DC’s Kent neighborhood became an open-plan abode designed with entertaining in mind. A bar area in the home’s center flows into a sleek kitchen at the back of the house; glass wall panels fold open to bring the outdoors in. Behind the bar, a pantry lit by clerestory windows keeps clutter at bay with abundant prep space and storage.
The kitchen is delineated by dark-stained HenryBuilt custom cabinetry that complements walls painted in Farrow & Ball’s Studio Green. A Paperstone counter tops an island where casual meals take place.
