We enjoyed helping our clients celebrate the historic charm but vastly improve the functionality of their 1911 craftsman in the Portland neighborhood of Alameda. Our clients wanted spaces that felt open, light, and met the needs of a chef and a family. In this kitchen remodel, we were able to take several segregated and dysfunctional spaces and create a beautiful expansive kitchen that serves as the heart of the home.
Needed more space and better functionality
Wanted to retain some of the charm of the 1911 home
Desired open, light feel
Required open floorplan
In order to maximize the natural light, we chose warm white reflective surfaces like the quartz countertops, subway backsplash and shaker cabinetry.
Grounding the space is a generous island of rich blue cabinetry. Customized storage solutions were concealed throughout the kitchen in order to maximize function without compromising the traditional feel of the space.
We sourced light fixtures that emphasize the craftsman architecture and installed large French doors and windows to connect the kitchen to the guest/play area and backyard.
