Aluminum gray Bulthaup minimalist cabinets on the massive island establish the color theme
Perhaps it’s my architect’s gene that draws me to the cool aesthetic of this minimalist Bulthaup b3 cabinets. And there are a lot of them in this 400-square foot kitchen with its 20-foot long island. No transferware plate collections here – just a bold, yellow painting titled “The Pale Cook,” by German artist Henning Kurschner. Looking across the mammoth island, note Bulthaup’s signature tambor pull-down door protecting a Kitchen Aid mixer [to left of the painting]. On each side of the stainless top on the work space are his-and-her integral sinks with a pair of matching Grohe Ladylux Café faucets. Modular Gaggenau Vario cooking set ups sit across from each other under the huge island hood. These combine different cooking appliances — on the near side (to the left of the sink) are two double-burner gas cooktop units with a stylishly covered grill in between. Opposite is a gas wok burner flanked by an in-counter steamer and a deep fryer.
The Midwestern couple who built this loft intended it to double as a gallery for their contemporary art collection. That dictates zero clutter, name-brand modern furniture, sleek surfaces and art-as-accessories, even in the kitchen since it’s open to the living and dining rooms.
The main block of white Bulthaup cabinets creates a monolithic storage wall that anchors one end of the view across the three rooms [photo above]. A pair of 36-inch wide Gaggenau horizontal convection ovens are centered above counter height, as flush as flat-screen TVs, and perfectly focused in the sight lines. The loft also features white Arne Jacobsen vintage Swan chairs reupholstered in ultrasuede, and molded-plastic Eames chairs, in red, around the dining room table. An engineered maple floor continues throughout.
