The homeowners of 1001 Peachtree Rd. didn’t want bigger, just functional. The goal was to have a restaurant kitchen in a small space. To accomplish this the space was gutted to the walls and completely rearranged, resulting in a beautiful and efficient kitchen that was able to accommodate 100 people for dinner nightly during the Masters Tournament.
This 3218 Dresden Way renovation reconfigured the existing kitchen, playroom and breakfast room into a large, open kitchen and keeping room. The kitchen is now the heart of the home. The vibrant modern art and its open, inviting entertainment areas provide an ideal place for cooking and entertaining.
The homeowners transformed their house at 3705 West Lake Dr. into a functional, fashionable home with finishes and scale reflective of their tastes and needs. During renovation they took the kitchen from good to gourmet and revamped a mother-in-law suite into a gathering space with full bar and a view of the pool, pool house and yard. The space offers privacy for adult entertaining but is nestled in the flow of the home to accommodate family gatherings.
The 3026 Fox Springs Rd. features a gourmet kitchen, family space and dining room designed for easy living and a spacious feel. The white-washed pecky cypress walls offer rustic texture against the smooth painted walls and cabinets. The home reflects casual elegance, dressed-up enough for a party, yet suitably relaxed for everyday family gatherings.
The open design of the kitchen and hearth room in the 579 Medinah Dr. home allows this close-knit family to gather while food is prepared and the large eating area provides space for homework and craft projects. Dark hardwood floors add to the rich, cozy atmosphere. The main focus was to create family areas with functionality.
