A Kitchen Built on Tradition
Modernizing through the use of historical details
Architect Rafe Churchill designed a new kitchen for a 1920s farmhouse in New England that combines modern amenities with the scale and aesthetics of a historic home. Sturdy, stainless-steel appliances enhance the experience of food preparation, while Shaker-style cabinets, maple and schist countertops, and white-oak flooring maintain that farmhouse feel. The green-blue color the homeowners selected for the cabinets adds to the way in which the kitchen joins the traditional and the modern.
