In an American manor house, an English-style kitchen of exceptional size
An imposing see-through, illuminated upper cabinet with glass doors on two sides is the defining feature of this super-size white kitchen. Acting like a room divider, the cabinet glamorously screens the view from the breakfast area into the cooking center. Since it hovers above the counter, there’s still a functional pass-through and serving space atop the base cabinet. (The butler’s pantry can be glimpsed beyond). New York architects Ferguson & Shamamian’s traditional English design includes classically framed cabinets and a mosaic tile back splash matched to granite counters. A Viking range, iconic cargo pendant lights and careful detailing add to the stately home effect.
Looking across the kitchen from the range side gives a cooks-eye view of the dining area which is concealed by the base cabinets and screened by the double-sided glass uppers. Note the double warming drawer and lovely cabinet refinements like the curved end near the door and soffit cabinets above.
