The Deceptively Simple Kitchen

From Avenue Magazine - 3 Calgary Kitchens We Love By Ricky Zayshely.
A well-designed kitchen usually holds a surprise at every turn. Despite its sleek lines and minimalist look, this kitchen, designed by Doris Martin of Davignon Martin Architecture & Interior Design and built by Rusch Projects Custom homes, has more storage than meets the eye. A washer and dryer are located within close proximity on the other side of the passage to the next room, and a wood column at the far end of the room actually holds the dinner and glassware.
Good design also translates directly to high function. The 14-foot-long island features three distinct zones for food preparation, cleaning and beverages.
“Function-wise, zones work,” says Martin. “People aren’t bumping into each other when they’re working.” She adds that a white countertop, like this quartz one by Icon Stone & Tile, is a great choice for anyone who wants a more neutral look than marble or granite.
Why we love this kitchen
A steam oven replaces the microwave — it’s healthier and just as convenient.
Three distinct zones for preparation, cleaning and beverages keep the workspace organized.
Two sinks — one for washing dishes, and one for food preparation — are better than one.
