Sustainable Cabinets Spur Sleek Kitchen Design

  • Jonas Carnemark, CR, CKD, principal and lead designer of KONST­–Kitchen Interior Design, was sought out by his clients for his work with SieMatic. SieMatic cabinetry adds a large sustainable element to this design; produced in a zero-emission plant, the veneer cabinets are composed of certified woods from sustainable, managed forests and exceed guidelines set by the USGBC’s rating system for LEED certification.
  • The 326-sq.-ft. kitchen, located in Annapolis, MD is in a home whose property is on the bank of a scenic bay. Carnemark’s open-plan design integrates the views from the large windows around the room. Visual lines from the cabinetry follow through the dining area into the main entertainment space.
  • Carnemark identifies clutter as the central problem of an open-format kitchen. To address the potential for clutter, the designer added a pantry out of sight behind the range wall for food and cooking supplies. A butler’s pantry beside the powder room houses a second dishwasher, sink and icemaker for use when entertaining.
  • The product line-up includes cabinetry from SieMatic in both Walnut Veneer and Magnolia White Matte Lacquer. The floor, which was the first element the clients selected and around which the color scheme was based, is Santos Mahogany. Appliances include a Wolf oven, warming drawer and range top. A Thermador hood sits above the cooktop. Refrigeration and freezer drawers are from Sub-Zero. The dishwashers and built-in coffeemaker are by Miele.
