Steal This Look: Brooklyn Heights Kitchen

Issue 4 · Brownstone Living · January 27, 2009

Our galley kitchen in Brooklyn Heights may not be spacious enough to eat in, but it allows me to fantasize that I am a line cook at Momofuku; stainless-steel cooking station, marble-countertop prep area, concealed dishwasher drawers, and a massive fridge are all within easy reach. The only thing I would have done differently is source a larger and deeper sink (see below) to stash dinner-party dishes. N.B. For custom metal doors like the one shown below, Product and Design Metalwork in the Brooklyn Navy Yard does exceptional work. And for storage, our architect, Steven Harris, specified custom-designed cabinets made from Glacier White Corian.

Above: The monolithic, free-standing Sub-Zero Pro 48 is as much sculpture as appliance. At 7 feet tall and 4 feet wide, it’s not for the small of kitchen, though. View and locate showroom near you at Sub-Zero.

Above: The Viking 36-inch, 6-burner Professional Custom Series Dual Fuel Range is a classic at Home Click; a Gas-Only Version is also available.

Thassos tile

statuary marble
