Museum District Contemporary

Houston, Texas

This client’s new professional building includes living space on the top floor overlooking terraces and the city. As avid “foodies” and cooking enthusiasts, they wanted a comfortable, sophisticated space with professional-quality kitchen equipment for personal use and entertaining.

This kitchen includes two ovens, a steam oven, microwave drawer and warming oven, range top, two dishwashers, wine storage, ice maker, and two refrigerators. Two large single-bowl sinks have foot-pedal controls, and instant filtered hot & refrigerated water spigots.

Combination of white quartz and black granite countertops, with white linear glass tile backsplashes create a serene contrast to adjacent bright colors in artwork and furnishings.

The solution? We designed peninsula that crossed line of ceiling change on angle. We designed custom 9 ½ foot-high stainless-steel hood and added a non-structural column that, along with structural column, anchors bar area. To accentuate the kitchen, we designed glass shelves recessed into metal channels in both bar columns, with color-changing LED tape lighting that shines through glass shelves.
