well with wood floors, which a lot of people like. Both can be

Elaine Pitcock: Im still using a lot of marble and quartz for
countertops because they present more of a monochromatic

hen architect Heather |ohnston got ready to remodel a 1950s
beach cottage in La folla, California, for hersell husband David
and their two dogs, being able to enjoy the outdoors and their
garden was among her prime wishes.Becauseof her modern aestheticand
their shared interest in sustainability,she also wanted the house to be'tool,
clean and green,and a laboratory to test materials and ideasi' she says.'A lot
of clients are much more reserved than we are."
Becausethe former owners had an artist'sloft on the secondfloor, fohnston
gained an office from the get-go, another reason why the house appealed."It
was like a New York loft and perfect, with a view of the Pacifici' she says.
Downstairs, her goal was to make the kitchen more open by enclosing a
small, dark patio to gain a larger,brighter 11' by 14' spacethat could be used
for cooking and entertaining.
"Our goal was to cook at home more often, since we have great equipment
and counterspace.We also wanted better storage to keep counters cleanl'
she says.To fit the desired look, she chose bright white cabinetswith white
CaesarStonecountertops and a large slate peninsula for a green touch. "It's
domestic granite quarried in Vermont, not outsourced from China, which
is important to usl' she says.The floor, from Oregon, is composed of wood
cuts bound together,and it runs up the face of the peninsula for continuity.

The couple also took a green approach toward
their equipment: They repurposed a Wolf range
and found a Sub-Zero refrigerator on eBay. They
also installed forged-brass fixtures rather than the
plastic ones that are now made in Korea and used
by many of the more
popular manufacturers.
Additionally, they used
fluorescent commercial
light fixtures. "How do
you do things that make
sense and not buy, buy,
buy? That was a goall'
says |ohnston. And with
big windows that can
be opened, the couple
gained their views and
cross-ventilation,too. No
restaurant could provide
a better view.

FIVE THINGS
WE I-OVE
ABOUTTHEKITCHEN
Becausethe kitchen had only one window, they decided
to brighten the room with a predominantly white palette of
oyster-colored cabinets,walls and ceiling, and pale, pale gray
CaesarStone countertops. Once these decisions were made,
they decided on one complementary contrast of frosted gray
backsplashtiles in a classicsubway pattern. Though the room's
dimensions are small, the kitchen offers a distinct advantageto
its young, busy family.'All the appliancesare closetogether,and
the boys can sit at the new peninsula bar to eat, do homework
or talk with usi'the wife says.To keep the kitchen remodeling
within the family's budget, many of the existing cabinets were
retained,but fronts were replacedand new hardware was added.

he kitchen had just 4 linear feet
of counterspace.
Plus,it was dark
and cave-like,with only one piece
of furniture for storage,and it had an
old refrigeratorand stove,saysdesigner
Melissa Salamoff, who was hired to
improve the space. Two additional
challenges:
Her clientshad a tight budget,
and they wantedthe job finishedquickly.
Salamoff decided that opening the
kitchen through a large pass-throughto
the adjacentdining room was worth the
constructioncost,sincethe changewould
bring in more light. The result is a tight
U shapethat functions efficiently,with
the upper graniteledgeof the peninsula
working as an eating space/buffet
area. The double-bowl sink, range and
refrigeratorwere placed close together;
in betweenis plenty of counterspace.
To
help open up the room, Salamoffkept
upper cabinetsto a minimum, and she
mixed them with openshelvesfor display.

Howto find/create

to fit a winecooler
request for a built-in wine cooler
was at the center of the redesign
of a West Hollywood, California,
condo. The basic galley-style kitchen
had a partition wall to separate it from
adjacent areas. When the owner asked
for wine storage, designers Christopher
Grubb and |amie Rueb of Arch-Interiors
Design Group Inc. rethought the existing
layout. By extending cabinetry on the
inside wall, removing the soffit, adding
a two-sided glass-fronted cabinet above
a two-level peninsula and changing the
plumbing, they gained room for the
requested wine storage. Removing the
partition wall made the spacemore open.
