This Edina Kitchen was designed by Allison Landers using her corner theory, which is a study of specific traffic patterns and tasks, through a long travel space.
The kitchen blends a twist of late 1950's and early 1960's mid-mod styling with a contemporary approach such as the blending of two tones on slabs and fun pops of psychedelic greens and oranges.
While the design fits the space and era, the functionality supports a family of four, that cook handmade pastas and sausage. Storage also holds multiple tasks and items such as filing for bills and family records, pencils, and a charging station for a dust-buster and vacuum. Not one inch goes unused. Allison believes too many people today pay for custom cabinets not even knowing how they will store and use the space.
Other features include USB ports for work and homework on the reclaimed soapstone table/nook and a retro refurbished intercom system that was pieced together and rebuilt with some cleaning and deep search for the actual parts on geeky internet vintage radio message boards.
This project was design only, by Allison Landers, and Built by Sicora Design Build.
