Kitchens $150,000–$225,000 Natural Influences XIOMARA MUNOZ GREIF ODP Architecture & Design, Hollywood, FL The design of this new home is all about minimal- ism and blurring the lines between outdoors and indoors. In fact, the floor plan of this ultra-mod- ern house weaves around existing live oak trees, allowing all the interior rooms to open to courtyards and exterior spaces. The minimalist aesthetic extends into the 600-sq.-ft. kitchen of this South Miami, FL home, designed by Xiomara Munoz Greif of ODP Architecture & Design. The family of four wanted a space with plenty of natural light and views to the other interior and exterior rooms, as well as a room that would act as the home's nucleus for family bonding and large gatherings. High-end appliances and sleek cabinetry with clever storage were also among the clients' must-haves. Greif began with full-height SieMatic cabinetry in Matte Lotus White perpendicular to the island to hide appliances and storage. Only the Wolf steam oven/microwave drawer is visible. To the left, a set of touch-latch doors hide the working area that serves as the family's command center, with cookbook storage and basic supplies. To the right, a full-height Sub-Zero refrigerator and sep- arate full-height freezer disappear behind the white panels. A warm frame of walnut wood allows the back counter and corresponding white upper cabinets to levitate, according to the designer, creating a central spine that anchors the 48" Wolf range and hood. Flat-panel cabinet doors to the right create additional storage to hide appliances, and include pull-out drawers that house silverware and cooking gadgets. The clients did not want a separate breakfast table, opting in- stead for dining at the island for less formal meals. Therefore, the island was extended to serve as an eating area and kitchen work space. The main portion of the island is topped with Istria engi- neered stone from Opustone, with a small eating area featuring a wooden insert. Included in the island is the Urban Edge sink from Julien, paired with a Blanco Culina faucet and Miele dishwasher.
