Historic Home Kitchen Layout

Fitting a modern kitchen into a historic building requires creative solutions. In a recent project in Cathedral Hill in Saint Paul, we took on an interesting kitchen layout challenge. We needed to place a long run of counter surface in front of two tall, beautiful windows. Altering the window opening was out of the question and blocking half of the glass area with a base cabinet seemed sloppy. Our simple solution involved building a cabinet without a back. A deep drawer accommodates pots and pans. A floating shelf, leg detail and a finished edge on the back of the counter stone complete the look.
