RETAILOBSERVER.COM MARCH 2019 38 FIRST PLACE / BUILDER—REMODELER KITCHEN Family Function This client, a local restaurateur, had a mission: a kitchen for one cook or four cooks, for entertaining or family dinners. It also had to emphasize color, art, and the family's collective exuberance. The layout of work, storage, and equipment areas was a top priority. Designer Lauren Levant used glossy linear bronze cabinetry to conceal the integrated refrigeration system, balanced with a food pantry of the same size on the other side. An appliance garage/charging station between the two volumes is hidden behind sliding doors. A dramatic cooking hearth clad in engineered stone and glass—the same material used to cover the working island—is the focal point. The space spills out into an open dining area that overlooks views of the poolside entry. —K.C. Lauren Levant Lauren Levant Interior, Pittsburgh.
