Kitchen Becomes Pastoral Paradise AFTER By relocating ductwork and mechanicals, Levant's team was able to remove the awkward dividing wall in order to open up the space. The kitchen needed to be able to handle large quantities of food and inventory, as the farmhouse is part of a working farm, so high-capacity appliances and refrigeration were added. In order to enable the cook to visit with family and friends while working, an outward-facing cooking area was incorporated into the island, along with a recessed ventilation hood to eliminate the need for a hood that would obstruct the view. The ceiling was dropped and warm wood planking was added to the ceiling in order to balance the color palette and complement the cool gray cabinetry and countertops. The wall surfaces are tiled with reflective glass in a herringbone pattern, maximizing the available light in the space. A custom steel-edged wine bar creates an additional area for the clients to entertain guests. The combination of natural materials and cool and warm tones come together to create a space that is at once rustic and Scandinavian-chic.

Arbitrarily divided and inefficient, the kitchen was not ideal for entertaining the clients' visiting family and friends, and was not in keeping with the farmhouse's aesthetic.
