Classy kitchen

Check out this classy kitchen suite we just designed and built for a San Francisco Dolores Park Victorian.


Many of the upper cabinet doors boast custom leaded glass inserts by Berkeley glass artist Sabina Frank.

We chose frame-and-panel doors with a bit of a fancy profile to mimic the original trim in the house. The finish is pigmented conversion varnish, for durability and a furniture-grade look.


Here’s this same elevation in CAD. This is how we communicate the nitty gritty for client / architect / contractor approval, prior to construction.

At the far end of the kitchen, preserving a tall, original window gave the opportunity for a cool ‘jog’ in the cabinetry and  [inadvertently] the perfect spot to store the stand mixer!

The end of the island features this cool hutch for spices and other small items – maximizing an otherwise awkward wall.

Over the fridge, we did our typical vertical dividers for storage of trays, cutting boards, baking sheets, etc.

Several cabinets have adjustable-height interior pull-outs – very handy.

Adjoining the kitchen is this really cool china / bar cabinet.

This area is underneath a strange, angled soffit – which made for some tricky cabinetry. Can’t tell, can you? That means I did my job well.


The left-most cabinet looks like it has three doors, but they’re actually joined to function as one – to make a generous broom closet.

On the other side, a flip-up door on the middle cabinet provides access to a concealed microwave [no, that’s not a TV].
