Above: The design of the banquette was inspired by an old church pew, which was discovered at an architectural salvage warehouse. The architect was able to integrate some of the pew’s details into this custom built-in design.

Above: The kitchen is a stand out feature of this home, encompassing approximately 300 square feet (about 28 square meters). One of the projects goals was to mix old, traditional concepts and put a modern spin on them, bridging the gap between centuries worth of technology. One of the references to this is the dramatic arch that serves as the entry point to the kitchen. It is based on Jacobean-style, a way that the architect sought to infuse the space with historical references.

Above:  The wood throughout the interiors is rift and quartered white oak. The wood was washed in a white pigment oil, creating the aesthetic of a subtle whitewash. The rest of the interiors has white plaster walls, yet the kitchen was given a more durable treatment. The designer opted for white enameled shiplap. White marble slabs were used on the countertops and backsplash.
