Todays kitchen is no longer a room used only for food preparation; rather, it is truly an integral part of the living spaces. This user-friendly gourmet kitchen design defines quality of life while complementing the custom home’s overall theme: livable, yet approachable atmosphere; private, yet perfect for a large family; traditional, yet contemporary. Complete with two oversized islands with sinks, abundant countertop space and a custom stone breakfast table, this kitchen is ideal for entertaining. The cooktop wall is designed to be aesthetically pleasing yet practical. Chandeliers in antique silver leaf hang above the Old Biscayne Designs dining table, which seats twelve. Behind the formal dining area, the bar has wood-carved detailing that mirrors the family’s entertainment center. Highlighted by intricate ceiling designs and delicate trim work, expansive windows allow abundant natural light throughout. In a challenge to accommodate the ceiling detail and numerous windows, concrete tie beams and trusses required precise, onsite modification and field framing. The butler’s pantry provides storage for all the kitchen gadgets, and leads into the Florida mudroom. This kitchen represents a symbol of healthy, large family living, serving as the center of attention with a masterful flow to adjacent living, dining and entertainment areas.
