The Owners of this home love to cook, and their first requirement was a "cook's kitchen" as the centerpiece of the house.  Thus the concept of salt and pepper developed as an inspiration, their color preference being black and white.  In addition the Owners are art collectors, so the display of art in the house was another critical component.  White walls with black framing elements were a perfect fit for this,. The owners were looking for a place of calm and relaxation, with the flexibility to change into an entertainment space for their many gatherings.  Therefore the need to open up the traditional walled-in rowhouse became apparent.  The rear second floor was removed and a double-height wall of windows and sliding doors connects the 2-story living space to the new rear garden.  As a gesture to the Owners' love of art, steel was used as both a structural and decorative element in the house and garden.  Finally, "pops" of color sprinkled in to add some spice to the composition.
