Kitchen that connects to its surroundings through material choices

Niche handles on the island cabinetry continue this kitchen’s minimalist presence and ensure no one gets snagged on a proud handle when entering or leaving the kitchen.  The marble-look countertop connects with the black and white wall cabinetry, while the patterning creates a sense of movement in the pared-back kitchen says architect Melonie Bayl-Smith. The kitchen skylight over the island was introduced as part of the renovation.
