Featured on the 2011 Architectural Heritage Tour, our preservation work on this 1950s kitchen was significant for us on several levels. It was our first client who had such a personal connection to the building’s construction. The mother of one of the owner’s had designed the entire home, including Japanese-influenced kitchen cabinets, which were hand built. We were tasked with restoring them, as well as the rest of the custom-built kitchen, to their former glory. Besides the trust placed in us by our clients, we also appreciate how this project cemented our reputation for restoring mid-century homes.
