Cambridge Multi-Unit Development Modern Leicht Kitchen Wood Accents
The beginning of everything:
As the old adage goes: out with the old, and in with the new. And, never has the saying been so true for Divine Design Center.
When the Divine showroom picked up and started a new in their Battery Wharf Showroom, it's designers weren't entirely convinced that new projects from old Boston Design Center prospects would follow suit. However, for Divine designer Samantha DeMarco, these fears proved steeped in anything but realty. Especially when fate came a knocking a little less than a year ago, here at the Divine showroom.
With modern design on the rise, and a legion of developers in the Boston area expanding their scope, this Walden Street renovation was a designer girl's dream come true.
From form to function:
Samantha worked closely with the "hands-on" developer in creating a kitchen design for both units, inside the Walden Street renovation, that were both cutting edge; yet, cost-effective.
The final concept included spectacularly-lit niche shelving and an unexpected marriage of both gray and black cabinetry from Leicht.
Speaking of Leicht Cabinetry, the decision to use the German Kitchen Designers for this development was obvious. There are still few in the cabinet game that do the sleek cabinet design...and DO IT RIGHT.
According to Leicht, "With Concept 40 the term 'wall units' has been newly defined. The design principle is the flat covering of the total wall space above the worktop. The horizontal line is achieved with 40 cm high front runs. As a special design feature, these fronts have grip rails in a stainless steel look at the bottom or are color powder-coated. More handle types are not available. Electric damper drives are optionally available. They can be combined with or without grip rails. Concept 40 was developed as “stand-alone” planning unit and was deliberately not made to match tall unit heights."
Beauty in the details:
In a similar vein to the Concept 40 Cabinets, Samantha alongside her client paid special attention to other sound elements associated with contemporary design.
1. For starters, the designer proposed Sillite outlets for the kitchen island. The integrated modern outlets meet building code (for outlets on an island), while also maintaining the clean appeal desired by modern inquirers and designers alike.
2. Second, Leicht's trademark handle-less cabinets played an integral part in the detail-oriented + final affect in the finished look.
3. Angled-cornered cabinetry, an innovation from Leicht alluded to the maximized addition of space in this development.
