Cheviot Hills Kitchen by Luxus Construction

Designer: Michael Parrent Environmental Design,, phone 310-569-6175

This project was unique because the 50’s style house had a strong aesthetic that we didn’t want to loose in the renovation. The house is composed of two rectangular areas that come together at about a 20 degree angle making the conventional right angles of a room only a dream. The program was to make this odd space work for a serious cook and to bring in the garden view to the kitchen. We achieved this with operable skylights, Clear glass block and custom windows from Milguard. The only addition to the property was to push out two windows to make a built in window seat that greatly added to the sense of spaciousness. The owner brought several ideas to the project to utilize what would have been wasted space in odd corners. The kitchen is obviously new but retains the spirit of the rest of the house and will age in a timeless graceful way.
