This project is a kitchen remodel of an old original adobe home in the rolling hills of Carmel Valley. Our work here involved gutting the existing space and redesigning the entire kitchen and dining area. We designed a new and more functional layout by moving some appliances around, created more flow by opening up a doorway to the family room beyond, removed a previously dropped ceiling to expose beautiful open beams, used the original antique redwood paneling from an adjacent wall to make the new cabinets, put in a new stone floor and in general re-aligned this space, its colors and its materiality with the old world detail and spirit of the adobe in a contemporary and fresh way.
