Whether or not the rumor is true that Frank Lloyd Wright sketched the plan for this iconic 1947 home on the back of a napkin, one thing is for sure- it’s walls of glass dissolving the lines between indoors and out were way ahead of their time. While the kitchen had been recently updated, the room remained cut off from the living areas of the house. The homeowners hired architects Giulitti Schouten Webber to open up the kitchen to the living areas and the view. We were brought in to detail out the new features and update the finishes and cabinetry, lighting and hardware in a thoughtful way that worked with the gorgeous features that were to remain - some cabinetry, the vein-cut quartzite counter & backsplash & floating shelves. A new boomerang-shaped island reflects the shape of the home. New finishes blend with existing to create a seamless design that effortlessly blends old with new. The kitchen is now much more integrated and connected with the house design as a whole, transparent and open to the views.
