Urban Kitchen With a View

The views in a downtown Minneapolis condo create an energetic panoramic cityscape.  But the kitchen was a tired, outdated room. The owners fixed that with the help of a p4d designer and crew.

A top priority was to design the kitchen for an owner who loves to entertain and cook.  He had some specific idea about how to go about that. Also, the goal was to connect the kitchen with the open and spacious feel of the living area.

On the practical side, the white cabinetry was replaced with earth and gray tone textured cabinetry. Organic tones in the granite countertops with a touch of blue hold a raised butcher block to make food prep and cleanup more efficient.

A vertical pullout pantry, place near the range, was also worked into configuration for the custom cabinetry to give the owners added and convenient storage space.

A focal point of the newly designed kitchen is the addition of a sophisticated and timeless French made Greige range and hood.

The same footprint was maintained for the renovation but reconfigured with the help of efficient cabinetry to create more storage space. Touch latch drawer technology, a feature of the contemporary cabinetry, provided another element the owners wanted.

Now the kitchen has the energy of a contemporary landscape. (Photos/Gilbertson Photography)
