This California kitchen in a spectacularly restored Victorian mansion features eight unfitted YesterTec workstations that are centered under an exquisite stained glass dome that is the room’s focal point. It is one of our earliest and largest renovations to date, as usually only 3 to 5 pieces are needed to complete an entire kitchen. Then again, a mansion should have a large kitchen, but even more rare than its size is the glass dome, have you ever seen anything like it in a kitchen? Victorian Kitchens in the day when this mansion was built were staffed by employees and could be quite large. So true to its heritage, this kitchen was designed for use as a caterer’s kitchen, even though it is the family kitchen most of the time.
To accommodate food preparation on a large scale, the two freestanding Sink (S)islands each have a sink, one has a dishwasher and the other a trash compactor. One island has an (AC) eating counter and an (ST) storage unit that adds additional prep counter where it is needed most. The tall range (B & TP) in the middle has punched tin doors that safely hide two ovens. The punched tin was custom designed with a meaningful family pattern. The range is flanked by two 36″ Infill (X)Low Boy pieces that also butt against a Subzero 700 refrigerator / freezer (SZ)on the left and a Working Pantry (SZ-WP) on the right. The working pantry conceals another counter top and all of the small appliances. The Infill (X)High boy piece to the extreme right provides additional storage. The Infill pieces are typically lower and less deep and in this case they are in Hampton’s Cherry to help visually separate them from their adjacent Bombay Mahogany pieces.
