Working with a classic mid century modern structure we created a kitchen that integrates well with the existing living room. The installation of a very long and low window allows for different view experiences and makes the room feel much bigger and more contemporary. By introducing a very small cantilevered addition in the kitchen we saved on cost and created the main design concept — a kitchen cut into two with the insertion of a dining room table. Making the kitchen feel larger, the addition also has a customized tilted window to an outdoor eating counter. The monochromatic color palette used also helps make the spaces feel much bigger than they really are.
