2014 Kitchen Design Honorable Mention: Perfect Planning Kitchen
Designer: DeStefano Architects in Portsmouth
The client, a noted planner, needed a home with ideal space for gatherings during holidays, summer vacations or
spontaneous Thursday evening dinner parties. Purchased as a shell, the home was transformed by the architects through a unified concept that was an equal blend of aesthetic and function.
As the heart of the home, the kitchen was given the most thought and resulting detail. Wide and elongated counter space and work areas were created to include family photographs and memorabilia. The pantry can be accessed from the kitchen and living room. Antique furniture was placed accordingly throughout the space to enhance the appeal and give visitors the strong desire to stay awhile.
