Contemporary Zen is the theme of this project. The house had a small greenhouse family room off of the kitchen. This was removed and replaced with a family room that has a peaked ceiling and looks onto the garden. The new kitchen combines the former utility room and new family room to become the center of the home. The kitchen was designed with sustainability in mind. The floors throughout are bamboo. The cabinets are rift white oak veneer with a wheat board core. Stainless ends on the island along with stainless toe kicks and appliance bring a modern touch to the space. The owner’s Indian heritage is apparent with the incorporation of works of art and furnishings.
