This North Vancouver modern kitchen addition involved adding space to an existing home with unique angles. The added space was needed to create an open kitchen and eating area. To maximise light and circulation, new oversized skylights and a unique custom window surrounding the suspended hood vent were added. The grain matched, quarter cut, black walnut cabinetry exhibits a unique, repeating “stripe-like” pattern. This pattern is underscored by other features in the space such as the dry stack rockwork on the central fireplace and the bamboo grass feature wall at the far end of the great room. This striking pattern along with the volume of light filtering through the space gives the sense of over-height largeness to an area which is no more than 200 SF in size.
