Empty nesters made the move to a highrise apartment in Easton, PA overlooking the beautiful and unique convergence of the Lehigh and Delaware Rivers. With their adult children beginning their own families both near and far, their day to day lives required little space. That said, they have an extensive network of both family and friends and enjoy hosting events in their home. Their kitchen was dated and constricting but they were unable to expand it without impacting their ability to host their large dinner parties.
We were introduced to this project through a contractor due to our abilities in interpreting client needs and for our creative problem solving within challenging environments. This apartment space was formerly part of the Eastonian Hotel and its steel and masonry construction limited our ability to carve out additional space. We used every vertical inch and custom sized cabinets to maximize storage in alcove areas.
The design feature the homeowners loved the most were the clean lines and modern aesthetic as well as the mobile island set on industrial castors, designed to provide additional daily prep space but could be rolled to the side when their dining table was expanded to receive their guests. They also fell in love with the sculptural counter and backsplash material and electrical accessories that allowed the artwork of this material to be uninterrupted by power outlets.
