Located in the historic University Heights neighborhood of San Diego was a craftsman bungalow with an outdated and nonfunctional kitchen. Existing doors, windows, walls, and cabinetry oddly broke up the space and didn’t allow the proper function and natural light inside. Our solution was to locate new glass sliders directly towards the client’s backyard to bring in light, view, and access to their outdoor entertainment space. Windows were moved in a way that made sense for light and cabinetry locations. New custom cabinetry and built in seating in quarter sawn oak expands all walls and unifies the space while giving nod to the home’s historic craftsman construction. All new finishes and lighting complete the space for a modern couple living in an historic home.
