Homeowner Aumas designed the kitchen island, which is covered in marble tiles from Carrelages du Marais. The geometric floor tiles are from the same place and strung the matrix of lights up above it. An elegant palette of materials defines the open kitchen.
This modern kitchen update required taking out part of the wall, which completely changed the layout. The small island in the original kitchen does not encourage frequent use. The clients wanted an improved flow, ample space to cook and bake, and updated materials and appliances.
When choosing stainless steel products, look for a high percentage of chromium and nickel, as this indicates the steel is strong and durable. Also, decide how much space you can afford to set aside for your sink. It may not be a wise decision to install a double-sink if you’re in need of more worktop space.
The architects decided to apply the concept of deconstruction, allowing them to use the girders as ceiling lines. That demarcate the different functional zones in the open-plan living, kitchen, and dining area.
