DESIGNER PROFILE we specify have a lot of experience, so we often look to them for insights." Studio Fōr also works regularly with Henrybuilt, since Henrybuilt's unique kitchen systems – interactive wall panels, interior components, work surfaces and other products – "often appeal to clients who want something modern, but with warmth and materiality," Khanani observes. The company recently completed a proj- ect outside Chicago with a large Henrybuilt kitchen. It has also worked with a local millwork shop to design and construct a built-in banquette and storage that com- plements the kitchen cabinetry. The final touch was a colorful tile floor in contrast to the wood and gray tones of the cabinetry and built-ins. Another recent project included the gutting of a kitchen in a historic Victorian home for a chef and her family. For that personal and test kitchen, Khanani's design team used paneled kitchen cabinets to give a nod to the original design of the house, but complemented that with a modern gray cabinet color, as well as modern bar stools and light fixtures, to give the project more of an updated feel. "We hope that our work speaks for itself," Khanani says, "and that clients come to us based on our process and the spaces we create. "Kitchen and bath designs are very person- al, and often unique, based on the client, so we try to be as cognizant of those aspects of a design as possible," she adds. "I think people who end up working with us come to that decision based on how we describ e our design process and our relationships with clients." ▪ This project began by gutting the kitchen of an historic Victorian for the chef client and her family. Paneled kitchen cabinets were used as a nod to the original design, with the grey color scheme, stylish bar stools and lighting adding a modern touch. This Victorian home's updated bathroom offers a clean, stylish and well-lit space that's both fashion- able and functional. 32 Kitchen & Bath Design News • June 2018 Award-winning. Handcrafted.
