The clients are downsizing to a young family moving from the city to Ardsley, NY. They want a kitchen that will allow them to enjoy time together as a family, while functioning well for entertaining.
After our initial consultation, had a clear vision of what our clients needed. Functionally, the primary goal was to improve the workflows in the space, by creating a dedicated prep area. They love entertaining, so we needed to create a barrier between the guest area and prep space.
We also wanted to create a comfortable area to allow them to spend time together while working on separate tasks, whether cooking, doing homework or working remotely.
East Hill created a unique design to use the space most efficiently. First, we rearranged the appliances to create distinct work areas for cooking, cleaning and preparation. Adding an island created a large work surface, while separating the work and seating areas.
Second, we removed an existing wall to create an eat-in area. Removing the wall allowed us to fit an island, while still fitting a large table.
