estate kitchen remodel

We were asked to remodel the kitchen and living suite of the Traditional Estate house located on the Three Season Cabana property.  The client wanted to update the interior to a clean, simple aesthetic while still paying homage to the traditional heritage of the home. Our challenge was to rectify the traditional layout and existing windows of the home with a modern material palette to achieve the desired contemporary yet classical feel. We removed the bulky cabinets dividing up the kitchen and living room in lieu of a simpler, more open layout. The new openness between spaces - combined with a refined selection of soft whites and warm, natural materials - takes advantage of the plentiful amount of natural light flowing into the spaces to breathe new life into the home.
