NAME: Private Residence
PROJECT TYPE: Kitchen Renovation
LOCATION: Short Hills, New Jersey
SERVICES: Architecture, Design, Detailing of Cabinetry


The Clients asked us to help them renovate the Kitchen and create a Mud Room and small informal Powder Room in their home. The Kitchen had been redone a number of years earlier by prior Homeowners without regard for the style and detailing of the 1920’s Architecture of the home. The layout was inefficient and awkward, and the ceiling had been lowered, conflicting with the window heads. We reconfigured existing angled walls and some closets to obtain unobstructed, clear-cut spaces in which to layout the elements that our Clients wanted; we also raised the ceiling to match the original height, and recreated moulding details to match those throughout the lovely home. Simplicity, symmetry and sensitivity to the existing Architecture of the home were our guiding principles in the design of this graceful, elegant and efficient Kitchen and Mud Room.
