K&MO Renovation
University City, Missouri

Created a
kitchen in a
masonry suburban St. Louis home. The new space was created by combining a breakfast room/butler’s pantry with the existing kitchen.

Structurally, a new steel beam was installed flush with the ceiling and the bathroom (located directly above) was renovated as well. Design details include:

• Central Danby marble-topped island rises from the floor and cantilevers out to create a seating area

• Custom-designed cabinets fabricated from Rosewood veneer with grain running horizontal

• Danby marble countertops and backsplashes

• The rear door was moved and the cooktop placed on an outside wall against a huge Danby marble slab

• New lighting was installed and new windows and doors flood the room with natural light

• White oak strip flooring installed to unify finishes from adjacent rooms

• Larger opening between kitchen and dining room improves circulation

• Storage organized with full-height cabinets around the appliances on the east wall and opposite, a series of open shelves with sliding glass doors



• 2010-2012 Regional Winner in Sub-Zero & Wolf Kitchen Design Contest, in collaboration with interior design firm Fibercations (awarded in 2013)
