The owner of this DC rowhouse wanted an updated kitchen that would marry its historical charm with luxurious modern style. The team accomplished just that with a minimalist design program centered on sleek matte black lacquer cabinetry with innovative LED-illuminated bronze channels taking the place of traditional handles.
Creating the under-stair wine room in such a tight space presented its own difficulties. The refrigerated room required custom details—from the precise angles of the glass panels and entry doors to the minimalist pegboard fabricated with drilled posts to display the wine bottles inside. Finding a nearby place for the chiller unit was another challenge. Instead of taking up valuable real estate within the room, they added a two-door tall storage pantry to the left with sufficient space behind the uppermost panel to house the chiller. To the right, a similar storage cabinet helps balance the clean design.
