We completed this project in 2005. What started as a remodel of a single bathroom soon grew into an entire house full of cabinets. We worked with Shed Architects in the updating of the residence originally designed by Seattle modernist Ibsen Nelsen.
A view from the pantry int o the kitchen.
The new peninsula features a solid walnut countertop.
Dimmable halogen uplighting creates a nice ambient secondary light source.
There's ample storage for cookbooks. And monsters.
Built in storage
A closet in the hall was removed to make room for a built in storage cabinet to be put in the kitchen.
A typical detail of the intersection of two cabinets at an inside corner. Also note the transition between the walnut and stainless countertops.
The original kitchen
The original kitchen space was enlarged and the appliances were relocated. Even though the new cabinetry framed the windows the entire space feels more open.
The peninsula was pushed back to make more room in the kitchen. The rotisserie (!) was removed to relocate the refrigerator.
Don Draper would feel right at home here.

A view of the garden
The central work table is situated to take full advantage of the garden view.
A sliding door can close off part of the master bathroom to create a powder room while entertaining.
Katherine's bathroom storage
A small spot on the landing between the children's bedrooms is a perfect place for these toy boxes.
