Bellevue, Washington


Carver Construction; Tim & A Team


This design, titled Planes, Frames & Hidden Things recently won 1st Place for Open Plan Kitchen in the Puget Sound Chapter of the National Kitchen and Bath Association. Creating an open plan design including the entry and front door, we used a mixture of quartzite, sintered porcelain, African ribbon mahogany, copper, stainless steel, brass, metallic wallpaper, hand-knotted rugs, and the owners’ textile art to create a cohesive, contemporary, and comfortable space of shimmering elegance. Lighting and new windows created a better connection to the natural light and their back patio.

The clients challenged us to find a dining table to seat 12 people, but that folds inward to seat 8 in daily use. We hid the refrigerator, two TVs, the oven, the range surface, and the microwave to make the kitchen a visual extension of the living space when not in use.  A clients’ favorite feature is how the island floats on a quartzite stone plinth which then rises to support the walnut bar and swiveling copper finished barstools.  A new entry with shimmery wallpaper, rug, and console table incorporates an antique piece from their travels and welcomes them home.
