This light filled condominium had a cramped galley kitchen, closed off from the dining room, and a very dated small bathroom. The project had a tight budget, so major changes had to be few and maximize their impact. A few simple plan modifications radically transformed the space, opening the kitchen to the dining area, expanding the storage significantly, and moving the washer and dryer out of the kitchen and near the bedrooms and bathrooms. The owner wanted a kitchen that felt stylistically in keeping with the pre-war apartment building, but was light and maximized storage. Dark gray and white cabinets with white counters are bright and low maintenance. Small changes in the bathroom – adding a large medicine cabinet and carving out linen storage, provided major improvements to the function as well as the aesthetics of the bath. This project was featured in Boston Magazine Online on November 8, 2017.
