Coastal Duplex (Side A) on the Water: Gulf Shores New Construction

Unique new townhouse duplex construction in a coastal community.

Owners lived in the house part of the year and rented it out the remainder of the time. The kitchen needed to be as bullet proof as possible given the tiny budget allocated. The kitchen is part of an open floor plan with a dining space, living space, and the kitchen all occupying one part of the big rectangular area. The client had a fixed price contract for the property and thus the budget was set in stone, yet he desired a kitchen that had the ambiance of a much higher end project. The name of the game was careful selection of “wow materials” to disguise the lesser expensive options of contractor built cabinetry and lower end appliances. But yet was imperative the flow of the space work for multiple seating options and working options. We carefully designed the layout to include a clean up zone in the island with working space as, well as a secondary sink near the range for a prep area (note the adjacent work space is ample), and the cooking zone that has ample work space near it too. Access to the refrigeration is at one end to not interfere with the cook and anyone prepping for a meal, as the home is large enough to house many guests – as well as the owners own young family!
