3. Green Back-Painted Glass and Caesarstone Designer: Ken Bridges of Blueline ArchitectsLocation: Vail, ColoradoSize: About 18 by 11 feet (5.4 by 3.3 meters)Year built: 2013 Homeowners’ request: Plenty of storage with few, if any, overhead cabinets; a spacious island with additional storage and counter space; a kitchen sink with a view; a pantry; and top-of-the-line appliances. Backsplash material: Plate glass back-painted in a sea glass, seafoam green color that goes from counter to ceiling with minimal grout lines. Countertop material: Two-centimeter slab Caesarstone in Organic White with slight gray mottling. The island forms an asymmetrical quadrilateral shape that’s meant to draw the eye into the adjacent living space. The countertop widens slightly into an overhang that can seat three people. Plan of attack: A desire to keep the kitchen open to the dining and living areas pushed the functions of the kitchen to the two exterior walls. Bumping out the exterior walls of the house created a place for the cabinets to live, helping to define the kitchen as a separate space within the larger living space. Blueline Architects p.c.
The soffit and clerestory windows bring down the scale of the room over the work areas for better task lighting, while filling the room with views and natural light. Making the walls “white” provided a nice backdrop for the darker cabinets, allows natural light to bounce around the space, and tied the kitchen in with the rest of the house. Who uses it: Heather and Eric Schultz, owners of Holy Toledo Designer secret: “Instead of the more typical walk-in pantry, which requires additional square footage for circulation, I use tall cabinets with pullout trays as the pantry,” architect Ken Bridges says. “Uh-oh” moment: “Initially, we did a true butt-glazed corner window,” Bridges says. “This is a great detail aesthetically but functions terribly in a cold mountain climate. In a humid environment, like the kitchen or bathroom, the windows constantly had condensation on the inside of the glass. “One way to fix this would have been to ‘wash’ the inside of the glass with warm air, but this would have required cutting open the base cabinets, so we decided to swap out the single-pane glass for double-pane insulated glass units and ended up with a piece of wood and metal trim in the corner. Not quite the same structure-free aesthetic, but still a minimal visual obstruction.”The nitty-gritty: Cabinets: melamine boxes with Echo Wood veneer finish, Davis Mill & Cabinets via Mountain Craft Cabinetry; flooring: polished natural concrete (800-grit); countertops: Caesarstone in Organic White; backsplash: back-painted glass in sea glass or seafoam green color; faucet: Brizo Solna with SmartTouch Technology; range: 48-inch dual-fuel, Wolf; range hood: 48-inch Streamline, Futuro Futuro; refrigerator: 42-inch built-in side-by-side, Sub-Zero; lighting: combination of 3- and 4-inch recessed can lights; windows: Sierra Pacific; bar stools: Room & Board Team involved: KRM Consultants (structural engineer); Marcin Engineering (civil engineer); Golf Resort Homes (contractor); James Florio PhotographySee more of this home Lisa Sten - Harrell Remodeling, Inc.
