As a kid in Bogota, Jaime Palmera used to sit under his dad's drafting table and draw architectural designs of his own. Well Columbia Heights is a far cry from Columbia — but that's where Palmera finally got to put his ideas into action. He completely gutted and renovated his 1940s townhouse to make a living and work space with a bar/gallery feel that looks "bold, not small."
Palmera designed his kitchen to fade into the background. An island made of stainless steel with a marble top separates the kitchen from the living area. The island has a dishwasher, stovetop (with covers to hide it when not in use) and shelving on the kitchen side. In the adjacent living room, the low furniture expands the view through the space.
