For the kitchen, their design goals were creating an open space that integrated with the dining room and introduce natural light. The current layout was very cramped and made it hard for them to cook together. The new design removed the load bearing wall that separated the spaces, incorporating a large peninsula in its place. The peninsula contains a large gas cook top, oven and speed-oven. An existing window that was covered by cabinetry in a previous renovation was opened up and the existing solid door was replaced by full glass to allow for natural light to wash the space.
