The design challenge was offered up by the client’s entertaining lifestyle and the smaller space of the condominium. To maintain the brightness of the space we chose a combination of exotic Zebra wood and high gloss white to highlight its contemporary design. The kitchen features a reflective glass back splash and concealed light valence under the elongated upper cabinetry. The island is topped with a contrasting counter-top. The sink was intentionally kept off the island to keep it unencumbered for food preparation and serving.
