Describe the project, what makes it unusual, and/or any outstanding characteristics.
Our clients came to us with their wish-list. The most important was to keep it simple, open and modern. They wanted to have as much open space as possible and have an island. Because of the space the island was a challenge, however, we came up with an amazing irregular island shape. It made the space look much nicer and provided an overhang for 3 person sitting area, as well as a wine fridge from their wish list. We kept the main wall with no uppers. Most of the storage was done with drawers and the rest of the storage was placed on the north side of the kitchen in built in pantries. Additional pantry was installed adjacent to the fridge. The space between the island and the fridge area has minimum clearance requirements as requested by the client, in order to get as much space possible for the wide island. There was a lot of back and forth, re-drawing and laying the island on the floor to make sure they would be comfortable with the tight clearance. It has now been a few months since we finished the project, and I followed up with the customer to see how the space is working out for them and the customer are very happy with the flow of the kitchen, with the functionality and the whole layout.
Even though we used white high gloss cabinets the clients really like the dovetail drawer elements which adds a high end look to it.

List any items that were outsourced.
Dovetail drawers, garbage bin, and Lazy Susan were outsourced from local suppliers.
