KITCHEN CUPBOARD DESIGN
A custom kitchen usually conjures images of farmhouse fixtures or a bevy of hidden storage, but when a surgeon commissioned a fully sterile space, designer Jim Dove molded cold steel to fit the confines of this turn-of-the-century Georgian home. Built to function as a restaurant-grade space for the homeowners to flex their muscles in experimental cuisine, the project pulled inspiration from familiar operating rooms and the French countryside to mix commercial appliances with vintage charm.
Since the homeowner required restaurant staples—like a commercial-grade salamander broiler and a 60-in. range—the kitchen was renovated to accommodate a custom hood. Built to withstand the extreme heat the appliances are capable of generating, the extensive ventilation work now allows all four ovens to run simultaneously without circulating extra heat through the home.
