Byggmeister's Solution

Measures taken to maintain traditional aspects of the home included restoring the original wood flooring; installing inset door cabinetry glazed with restoration glass; and reproducing the original head-height tile wainscoting. We designed the cabinetry to be consistent in quality and appearance with the original kitchen cabinetry, while also providing the functionality of a contemporary kitchen. Traditional cabinet panels camouflaged professional appliances suitable for entertaining as well as pantry pullouts for easily-accessible storage. We also complemented the traditional aesthetic with contemporary flare by installing stone and stainless steel countertops.

The end result is a kitchen that meets the needs of this family on a daily basis, can easily handle large-scale entertaining, and fits comfortably into the long, distinguished history of the home. Together with our client we breathed new life into a beautiful old home, honoring its past by adapting it to meet the needs of the present and the future.
