The results are more storage, a cohesiveness of design, and to the homeowner’s delight—seating for eight around the island. Hans Locher is the installer, the cabinetry is by Arrital, and the countertops are by Cambria.
In place of the shelving unit is a built-in bar, new storage for spices is alongside, and the heavy fire escape door is covered with a textured-finished mirror to reflect light and offer a greater feeling of spaciousness.
The specialty spices favored by the homeowner are conveniently arrayed along the wall.
The new bar is ready to serve partygoers with open displays of barware and bottles.
The cooktop offers similar convenience of open storage and prep space to each side.
New York City has been the seat of design approaches to make small spaces function well and to update and refresh older buildings. It is not surprising that a New York approach works so well in Old Town Park City, where space is at a premium and so many of the interiors have become a little dated.
