CONTEMPORIST: An L-Shaped Kitchen Island Is A Creative Way To Include Seating And A Table


May 18, 2022

SDH Studio Architecture + Design has completed a new home in Pinecrest, Florida, where a noticeable design feature is a kitchen, that includes two large islands. The larger of the two islands has an L-Shape, and the back side drops down to act as banquette seating with a table for a casual dining area.

The second island has a cooktop and views of the more formal dining area. Both islands have hardware-free cabinets and drawers, while wood cabinets along the wall finish off the kitchen.

Let’s take a look at the rest of the home…

The front of the house was designed with a large lawn that has a path leading to the front door. Plants and lighting soften the exterior of the home, while rain chains add a sculptural element.
