In the renovation, the isolated
kitchen has been opened to the living room and
dining area and walled from the family room via a large pocket
door, maintaining openness while allowing for privacy when
needed. Roughly the same size as the original, the kitchen
is now stylistically integrated with the home.
An informal eating peninsula bridges the formality of the
living room and the functionality of the kitchen and screens
the sink area with a low, rustic stone wall.
