Twice as Nice

Project Highlights

  • Designed by Winn Wittman of Austin, TX-based Winn Wittman Architecture, this kitchen features two separate islands that both complement and contrast each other. These also function to cleanly separate the space and enhance the kitchen’s functionality. A cantilevered, curved glass sushi bar, high on the client’s wish list, also adds appeal.
  • A palette of exotic and sustainable materials was selected for the design, including vertical grain fir for the cabinetry and CaesarStone countertops that offer some recycled content. Stainless steel and anodized aluminum were also incorporated into the design to create a sense of detailed modernism.
  • In order to maintain a sense of ergonomics to the space, it was important that the work triangle be minimized. Additionally, easy access to cabinets and soft-close mechanisms on drawers make the kitchen easier to use.
  • Wittman included a tremendous amount of natural lighting, and augmented that look with halogen task lighting and ambient lighting.
  • Product lineup includes: Wilkinson Woodworks cabinetry; CaesarStone countertops; Thermador range top; Elkay sinks; a prep sink with disposal from Kohler Co.; hardware from Hafele; MR16 halogen can lighting; task lighting; custom Sirius ventilation hood, and select maple flooring.
