Baltimore Loft

A 1980ís condominium was gutted to the studs and room defining walls were removed. A loft living space was created with a social kitchen open to the living and dining areas.  Instead of walls, freestanding custom cabinetry defines the limits of the new kitchen.  A large bow window was added making the kitchen area roomier, creating space for a large table as well as a sofa and arm chair.  The focus of the kitchen is an Italian marble work table that allows both cooking production and dining.  The goal of the design was to create a kitchen that integrates active cooking, free flowing socializing, with a premium emphasis on the conversational participation of the cook.
