Project: Riverfront Kitchen Renovation
Designer: Jennifer Radakovic Design
Client Needs & Design Challenges:
• Increase & improve counter space, work space, & storage
• Increase connectivity to adjacent living spaces
• Improve natural light & views towards the river for this completely interior kitchen
• Create a timeless aesthetic with new materials & finishes
• Work within existing kitchen footprint
By rearranging the kitchen layout, we were able to add 6.5 linear feet of cabinets. The improved work triangle is now suitable for multiple chefs working simultaneously. Two new openings in masonry walls (one at the front of the
kitchen, the other at the rear) significantly increased natural light, views, and connectivity to adjacent living spaces. The new finishes fit the clients’ style and flow perfectly with the rest of the interior spaces. Their renovated kitchen is a
space they’ll be able to enjoy for many years to come.

At the onset of the project, the clients had very few requests: they essentially wanted a more functional and more beautiful kitchen. Working within the existing kitchen footprint, no space was added, but the functionality was increased exponentially with simple plan shifts.
The end result is a beautifully simple, well-crafted space, equally suited for weekend baking or entertaining large groups. The design and finishes perfectly suit the rest of the home and the clients’ style, while still being timeless given the use of natural, high-quality materials.
The owners of this kitchen regularly travel all over the world, but have been spending unprecedented lengths of time at home since the onset of the global pandemic. They told our team that their newly renovated home has
given them a reason to love staying home, despite having
to cancel a number of exciting trips they’d planned for the
They said their new space has become a true oasis in the
midst of the chaos. We can’t agree more.
