Kitchens Over $225,000 East Meets West LUNG-SHAN CHANG Kitchen Designs by Ken Kelly, Williston Park, NY Unexpected details elevate this gray and white kitchen, designed by Lung-Shan Chang of Kitchen Designs by Ken Kelly, to a new level of sophis- tication and beauty. The 400-sq.-ft. space was designed to integrate modern functionality with the clients' Chinese culture, resulting in a kitchen that maximizes the space and comfortably ac- commodates at least four people. Integrating ancient Chinese cultural elements with modern design was key to the overall design, delivering a spiritually balanced flow of good energy known as Chinese Feng Shui. Knowing that her client was open to the interpretation, Chang included circular and curved elements in the design. These elements represent family, success and fulfillment in the cultural aspect of Feng Shui, she reports. At the center of the space is an island with seating, with Brookhaven's Pasadena door style finished in a medium gray tone. The island includes a prep sink and faucet, as well as a Wolf steam oven. Along the perimeter, white cabinets with Beaulieu hardware reflect elegant simplicity, punctuated by statement-making countertops and backsplashes in Cambria's Brittanicca design. Rounded corner shelving and glass-front cabinet tops add inter- est and softness. A Kohler white farmhouse sink is paired with the Quincy Two Handle Bridge Faucet from Kallista, flanked by two Asko dish- washers along one wall. On the back wall sits a Wolf warming drawer beside a 48" Wolf range, topped with a Wolf exhaust hood in white with stainless detailing. Around the turn, a Wolf microwave oven sits next to paneled side-by-side 36" Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezers. Photos: Ric Marder HONORABLE MENTION 40 Kitchen & Bath Design News • August 2019
