Steal This Look: An Industrial Kitchen in Brooklyn, Wood-Fired Grill Included

March 6, 2018

In a Brooklyn townhouse gut renovation by architect Elizabeth Roberts, the parlor floor kitchen was opened up with steel-framed windows, a new kitchen island, and a fireplace turned wood-fired grill (the owners cook often). Here’s a look at the individual elements to borrow a few ideas for your own kitchen.

The kitchen is at the back of the building, which in most Brooklyn Italiante structures is cramped and dark. Here, Roberts had a steel-framed window wall fabricated by Optimum Window. See more in Brooklyn Revival: A Bright and Open Family House by Ensemble Architecture.

The bulk of the renovation budget went into the kitchen. Roberts, a stickler when it comes to high-functioning kitchen design, integrated a downdraft vent with the pro kitchen island range.
