Kitchen of the Week: A Modern Kitchen in a North Carolina Log Cabin

January 25, 2018

Helen Rice and Josh Nissenboim have been designing their own spaces for years. Their branding agency, Fuzzco, in Charleston, South Carolina, has moved offices three times in the past six years (see their first office in Steal This Look: Fuzzco in Charleston), and Rice and Nissenboim led the remodel of their own house, a once-neglected 1850s house in town. So the two started Serious Buildings as Fuzzco’s real estate practice a few years ago. One of their more recent projects is the renovation of a 1900s log cabin on 23 acres in Flat Rock, North Carolina, as a weekend retreat (it’s also available for rent). The kitchen design is unexpected—“a surprisingly modern element of the historic-feeling house,” Rice says—with white cabinetry, marble counters, and hex tile floors. Here’s a closer look.
