Baltimore City Kitchen Remodel
This contemporary style condo was designed by architect, Brion Lipschutz from Kleinrock Studio Architecture in Washington DC. The homeowner desired a contemporary look but wanted the starkness of stainless softened with several natural elements. One just element is the black walnut live edge natural wood counter top pass-thru into the dining area. Nothing matches the warmth and beauty of natural live edge wood slabs. The organic wood grain patterns and live edge combined with the rich warm color provide a natural beauty that softens the industrial stainless steel appliances, railings, lighting and hardware.
The design also incorporated tongue and groove wood ceilings in the dining area and kitchen and an architectural wood wall treatment for the living room. The Adoni Black Natural Slate and Engineered Hard Maple Travertine wood flooring also bring an element of warmth to the polished counter tops, ceramic back splash and glass wall of windows overlooking the city around them.
To create this gourmet kitchen a Bosch Speed Oven, Verona Classic 36″single oven/range from Italy and a dishwasher from the Swedish manufacturer Asko were selected. The client also purchased the beautiful handcrafted Ultra Cream with black patine back splash tiles from an artisan in San Francisco California and each tile is hand made with a texture affect giving it an old world charm.
The metamorphosis is breathtaking. See for yourself!
