In this shotgun renovation, Atelier Design sought to open up the space to the back yard with new French doors, while introducing a new kitchen as the focal point, enhancing both functionality and aesthetics. Built-in cabinetry not only contributes to a seamless and organized look but also elevates the overall design. Paint colors were carefully selected to define areas within the kitchen. The combination of various finishes introduced texture and depth. The addition of two windows not only infuses the kitchen with an abundance of natural light but also achieves a harmonious symmetry, enhancing balance and openness.
