This 1920's Tudor-style home in Greenwich, CT had a narrow dark kitchen and a separate dining area. Our clients, a young family with 3 active children, asked for an enlarged cooking area with open flow to eating and sitting spaces. They also wanted to catch a glimpse of Long Island Sound in the distance, and have a fireplace to anchor the space.
The addition provided a new kitchen area with an island for preparation and snacks, defining the working triangle from the household circulation. A new doorway to formal areas in the front of the house is flanked by a beverage bar and breakfast nook with banquette seating and a table.
Open to the kitchen, the family sitting area with fireplace replaced the old dining room. It features a media cabinet with rolling doors, behind which is a walk-in pantry. Dining is relocated toward the exterior, in a high-ceilinged space with a timber frame truss. French doors open to surrounding outdoor living spaces and the yard.
