Project Description

Custom Kitchen On Summit Drive

This custom kitchen renovation began with a need for openness, functionality, modernization, classic overtones and an entertaining focal point as well as a family gathering and homework area. It continued with an in depth needs and wants assessment, floor plan design and complete 3D colour renderings. Additionally the dining/living rooms were separated by a curtain wall further lending to the closed, maze like feeling of the home – we changed that too. From there – destruction and construction…
