Contemporary Classic

The level of detail in this classic villa makes it hard to tell that it is a new building. This made it even more important for the kitchen to be designed to look like a modern satellite. Side-hinged doors in plain oak conceal appliances and functions, making the kitchen appear at first glance like a piece of furniture that extends into the adjacent living and dining area without pushing itself into the foreground. The greywacke kitchen island also hides hidden functions such as a retractable faucet for a second sink under a flush-mounted cutting board. Adjacent in the next room is a back kitchen with wine storage cabinets and a walk-in cooler.
