On the Drawing Board

We are incredibly excited for a new project that will be delivering next month!  This rendering is a view of the kitchen and butler's pantry.  Working with a very neutral palette of warm grays and whites, this whole house is going to be transformed.  Very thankful to Ruggles Mabe Studio for referring us on this wonderful project.

A quick shot of the range / hood / fridge wall from a project that is nearing completion in Aspen.  The cabinetry is Textured European Oak Veneer with a special "liming" process from Greenfield Cabinetry.  Wolf range with integrated pro hood above.  Door to right is a 36" fully integrated Sub Zero unit and the door on the left leads into the pantry.  The stone behind the range is a translucent natural material that is backlit.  Big thank you to Ruggles Mabe Studio for bringing us in on such a fantastic fun project.  


Following a Remodel from Start to Finish - Week 1

Interested in following one of our kitchen remodels from start to finish?  Good!  You're in luck.  We're going to be posting entries here as often as possible - shooting for weekly updates - following one of our kitchen remodels in Boulder.  

Today is the first entry - and I'm going to use a few photos and drawings to illustrate the old house footprint and what we aim to accomplish with the kitchen remodel.  

Here is a drawing of the existing house - pre - remodel.  


As you can see, the kitchen currently occupies the smallest room on the main level of the house.  

And while the kitchen is the smallest room on the main level, the room with the most space, the lower living room, sits mostly under-utilized.  

What we aim to do is completely relocate the kitchen down to the lower living room.  This will take advantage of the south facing windows for great sunlight, a much larger footprint, and it will also give us the opportunity to create the "great room".  Below is the proposed new floorplan for the main level:


And here is a 3-D rendering of what the new kitchen space will look like once completed.  A mix of zebra wood veneer and high gloss white cabinetry will be topped with a white quartz countertop and a really amazing walnut top on the island.  Sub Zero and Wolf appliances are complimented by the back painted white back splash.  We're even incorporating a new bar into the space to create a place where our homeowners can make a drink after a day at the office. 

First phase of demolition was completed yesterday. Here's our first pic of the new kitchen space, after the built ins were removed.  

Demolition phase one complete! 

Check back with our blog regularly to see the progress as we completely transform this home. We are aiming for weekly updates with photos and notes of our progress.  

Boulder Kitchen on the Drawing Board

This transitional kitchen will soon belong to a family of four in North Boulder.  With construction slated to begin in May, we are just a few months away from completely transforming their space into something really magnificent!

On the Drawing Board - Boulder Modern Kitchen

We are very excited to be entering the final design phase of a fantastic project in Boulder.  This project will be quite extensive in scope, as we are moving the kitchen to a completely separate room in the home.  This transformation is going to give the homeowners a phenomal dining room in the space previously occupied by the old kitchen, and allow for a much larger new kitchen in a previously under utilized space.  Below is a rendering of the new kitchen.  

Denver Polo Club Kitchen by Chris Awadalla featured in 5280 Home Magazine Autumn 2014 Issue

I was happy to design the kitchen for this project by interior designer Megan Kane in Denver's Polo Club neighborhood, just south of Cherry Creek.  Jones Custom Builders did a wonderful job, as always, implementing the great design with amazing craftsmanship.

Here are a few product samples we like.  I aim to create a serene space with minimal color transitions and simple lines.  We'll add interest with home owner artifacts that have been procured in far away places.
