"Nothing says summertime like cooking and eating in an outdoor kitchen"

It is the best of both worlds, in that you are outside with friends and family, and the cook can be part of the fun.  We have designed outdoor kitchens that are simple and have just a built-in grill, as well as fully furnished outdoor kitchens that rival their indoor cousins. While an indoor kitchen may be more practical for year-round cooking, it cannot compete with the feeling of cooking a great meal outdoors on a beautiful day. (We worked with Conte and Conte Landscape Architects on this project)

Kitchen One - Pool House Kitchen

Kitchen Four - Kitchen Below the Bedroom

 We set this kitchen into a stone hillside below a guest bedroom. The bedroom has a walkout porch that includes a stone chimney and a great view of the woods beyond.
