Knob Hill Apartment

Kitchen Workstation Furniture was used to completely renovate and transform this circa 1911 Knob Hill, San Francisco kitchen. When the building was originally constructed, the kitchen was an isolated workroom staffed by servants. The present owners' idea was to make it a more lived in room by furnishing it rather than installing cabinetry, which was a complete 'about face' compared to all the other apartments in the building. The Kitchen features eight separate furniture pieces, including natural wood armoires and a granite topped island. Offering classic details and a mix of wood finishes, the handcrafted furniture enhances the space while sleekly concealing the appliances. In a large Armoire a Subzero 700 (15 cu. ft.) refrigerator and a full sized (15 cu. ft.) freezer is divided by a full height pantry with roll-out trays. On the Sink workstation, grid pocket doors conceal a standard dishwasher, and sliding reeded glass doors above conceal the coffee maker and blender. The breakfast table, located in front of a large expanse of shuttered windows, provides an elegant place for intimate meals, due to the formality of its surroundings.
