The Mid-century Ranch style view home needed functional, flow and cosmetic updates to some key spaces. The existing kitchen had too much distance between kitchen counters, yet not enough space for an island. In the new kitchen, the space between the wall and island counters has been narrowed through the addition of an aisle for circulation and entertaining. By freeing the north wall of a kitchen counter we opened the space to an expanded view of the Olympics. All updated spaces have been designed to reflect a contemporary interpretation of mid-century design aesthetics and to blend with existing decor.
