Edwardian-Style Flat Displays Modern Touches

  • Mark Hermogeno, principal/owner of San Francisco, CA-based Hermogeno Designs, worked on the kitchen in this 1920s Edwardian-style flat for his clients. They required an aesthetic that would be consistent with the rest of the apartment – an eclectic mix of early-20th-century styles including Arts & Crafts moldings, tiles and other details.
  • Little work had been done on the space in its 80-year-plus lifespan. This required Hermogeno and company to take the room down to the studs to start anew.
  • Because the footprint of the 128-sq.-ft. double galley kitchen was unable to be expanded upon, Hermogeno and his client, a custom cabinetmaker with whom he often collaborated, designed creative storage options. Custom made solid maple cabinetry is painted in Antique White by Kelly Moore, with decorative hardware in Chateau Dark Bronze with an Antique Crackle porcelain from Top Knobs.
  • Despite the 20th century design, the modern conveniences of the 21st century were also a priority for the clients, including a Fisher & Paykel dishwasher, an appliance the previous kitchen lacked. The kitchen also features a 30" Bertazzoni professional gas range and hood and a Thermador refrigerator and microwave.

Hermogeno, of San Francisco-based Hermogeno Designs, worked with his client, a cabinetmaker, to create stylish storage options that include these Arts-and-Crafts inspired cabinets, with glass-paneled display room at the top.
