Small Kitchen: First Place

Wiedemann Architects orchestrates a petite kitchen with big water views

When conceiving a custom dwelling overlooking Mount Vernon and the Potomac River in Maryland’s Charles County, architect Greg Wiedemann masterminded a sleek kitchen in keeping with the home’s modern aesthetic. “The kitchen is compact but lives large,” Wiedemann notes. “It incorporates the stained walnut of the home’s core and opens to the living area and views beyond.”

An island with a raised, leathered-granite countertop screens prep space from the living/dining area. A central range wall is flanked by custom walnut cabinetry that neatly conceals the fridge and freezer. A painted-glass backsplash reflects water views while a glassed-in breakfast nook overlooks the surrounding woods.
