In addition to comfortable cooking space for two, this kitchen also provides a highly spiritual connection to the great outdoors. The clients love their garden, and wanted to feel like they were outside as they were cooking inside the house. This became a big mission for the entire kitchen design, partially addressed with a custom window-wall backsplash over the sink. Negative space created by the shape of the upper cabinets results in an eye-catching frame for the greenery of the garden, literally bringing the outdoors in by contrasting it with a neutral interior color palette.
