Massive windows were used, along with raising the ceiling, to give the room a feeling of even more space. These in the corner fill the kitchen with light and almost make you feel like you’re outdoors.

The first floor kitchen was completely redesigned to reflect the homeowners’ interests, which combined both refined and rustic materials.

The partially open shelves provide storage for the owners’ collection of African bowls and primitive artwork.

Additional shelves were built, similar to those hanging in the kitchen, for extra display space.
