A New York State of Mind

New York . NY

The iconic fleur-de-lis shown throughout this project is a traditional French touch and the special signature of L’Atelier Paris (though optional), but when the owner of this dramatic Manhattan penthouse asked us to design his kitchen, we knew the space should also evoke a distinct New York sensibility.

After consultation with our client, a gifted home chef, we proposed a monochromatic deep-charcoal palette highlighted with gleaming chromed-brass trim and touches of warm oak. The sleek ultramodern design favors clean lines with minimal ornamentation—it’s highly functional yet striking in its simplicity, both an aesthetic showpiece and a laboratory for culinary experimentation.

Our floorplan and design for the cabinetry took into consideration optimal positioning for the range, convection ovens, and built-in convection warming drawers, with ample prep areas and two full sinks spaced-apart for convenience. The client, who regularly hosts large-scale charity fundraisers at home, also requested multiple wine chilling units, in addition to a pair of full-size integrated refrigerator/freezers. 

This exceptional contemporary space demonstrates the extraordinary craftsmanship of L’Atelier Paris Haute Design kitchens as well as our range of styles. The cabinetry is constructed of durable hand-brushed stainless steel with chrome-finished brass trim, warm oak is used as a detail on the cabinet pulls as well as for open shelving, and Nero Marquina marble is used to great effect for the backsplash. Most important, the kitchen reflects our client’s request for a kitchen that would both function beautifully and make a powerful and lasting impression.
