Do you have unique kitchen features that you love?

“I like the contrast of modern interior with a historic skin(windows, siding, etc.)” ~ Chris Dawson Chris Dawson Architect

Was there a cabinet maker, builder or anyone you’d like to give credit to regarding the inspiration, design, or decorating of your kitchen? Chris Dawson Architect(CDA)

As an architect, what were you thinking about as you did the design?

“Being in a modest 1939 home built for chocolate workers, the house and lot are small. When we bought the house in 1995 it was divided into very small rooms. We took down the wall dividing the kitchen and dining rooms and enlarged the opening between the dining and living rooms to create, essentially, one large space across the front of the house to improve the connection between people in all three spaces. This new front space was still rather shallow so we used glass and white wall cabinets to make it feel bigger and a walnut ceiling plane to accent the width of the space. I chose Carrara marble first because of its timeless beauty but secondly because of the rich contrast that comes with pairing it with walnut. The use of walnut for trim work, cabinets, table top, etc. grew out of a desire to match an antique corner china cabinet that we purchased shortly after moving into the house (might have been our 2nd purchase after a bed).” ~ Chris Dawson, Chris Dawson Architect

Chris is the owner of both this home and his business Chris Dawson Architect(CDA)
