Contemporary and Functional Kitchen

Architect Barney Maier maximizes limited space to create a pro-quality kitchen.

  • Smart, Practical Island

    An island with cooktop and secondary sink, placed close to the dishwasher and wall ovens, creates a practical cooking/clean-up zone with the refrigerator smartly set apart to keep work zones separated. Another goal was to have a place to perform culinary demonstrations. Photography by Eric Roth

  • Stunning Backsplash

    A mosaic picture behind the main sink adds a decorative note in the expanded kitchen; countertops are a charcoal Cambria with blue flecks that blends. Photography by Eric Roth

  • Decorative Shelves

    Open shelves permit display and see-through views; the maple has a natural finish. Photography by Eric Roth

  • Casual Eatery

    An eating nook with the other side of the see-through display shelves turns a breakfast area into a place that can function for more substantial, even company meals. Views of the backyard were another criteria when the kitchen was expanded. Photography by Eric Roth
