Back to Residential Next Project: Lake Shore

CHALLENGE

In the galley kitchen of this 1940’s courtyard townhouse, the metal cabinets were in disrepair, the floor was sinking and the efficiency necessary in such tight quarters was severely lacking.

SOLUTION

We let the mid-century architecture direct our plan, evoking furniture designers Paul McCobb and Edward Wormley, whose steel-framed furniture epitomized that modern era. With these cues in mind, we used walnut cabinets and a white countertop to create a clean, crisp and functional space.
