Simplicity

Small Spaces

A designer uses creative
measures to instill light and
elegance into a beach condo
UPON RETIREMENT, ONE COUPLE MOVED from
Arizona to a condo on the California coast where
they could be closer to the ocean. Even though
the location was ideal, the style was outdated and
dysfunctional for their purposes.
"The clients wanted a much more modern style
with a fresh attitude and elements reflecting their
ocean view location," said Tatiana MachadoRosas, design department head of San Diego,
Calif.-based Jackson Design and Remodeling.
Her colleague, Sol Quintana Wagoner, designed
and led the project. "They also wanted two baths
with tub and shower space to replace an existing
powder room, which had no shower, and an [awkward master] bathroom."

RETHINKING LAYOUT AND CABINETRY

In the kitchen, the homeowners particularly
hoped for a modern design with an artistic sensibility. To lay out a more streamlined floor plan,
space was borrowed from an adjacent laundry
room; this created enough room for the oven and
microwave to be installed flush with the wall.The
sink was moved to the wall near the window to
take advantage of the natural light and to allow
for more efficient storage.

ABOVE "The idea of balancing

'positive' and 'negative'
concepts, such as the blackand-white color palette and
the emphasis on contrasting
natural and glossy materials,
gives the small space artistic
expression," said MachadoRosas.

These sliding, frosted-glass
panels can be positioned in a
variety of ways to bring a touch
of the artistic expression the
homeowners were looking for
into their new kitchen.
LEFT Another request was

for a little industrial style. The
sink faucet fulfills this with its
slim, stainless-steel make and
strong profile.

Using 20/20 and AutoCAD design software, the design team laid out an
innovative storage system for the remaining space. Instead of installing the
same upper cabinetry on every wall, the team decided to include a slidingglass storage system on one wall to open up the space visually.These frostedglass panels partially cover open shelving, which is laid out in a staggered
pattern. The shelving also has undercabinet lighting to illuminate the small
interior of the kitchen; the frosted panels both amplify the light and add an
element of creative expression.
THE ILLUSION OF SPACE

For the rest of the cabinetry, a modern, flat-panel design was chosen for the
doors, but the color differs between the uppers and lowers.
"Keeping all of the bottom cabinetry white and all of the upper cabinetry
dark perfectly balances the kitchen and amplifies a sense of expansiveness,"
said Machado-Rosas.
An 18-in. dishwasher was selected instead of the larger and more common
24-in. size, and the refrigerator was done in black stainless steel so it seems
to blend in with the rest of the cabinetry. The hardware throughout is matte
black, and the countertop is a contrasting white quartz to emphasize the
black-and-white theme.
"In such a spare design, it was essential that each element be carefully selected to support the overall effect of chic simplicity," said Machado-Rosas.
"Timeless black and white make the small kitchen feel large and welcoming."
A telescopic hood - designed to retract when not in use - and an induction
cooktop save space in the small footprint. A hanging area for cooking utensils
is situated on the wall tile behind the stove to preserve countertop space. In
addition, a recessed area at the bottom of one wall of cabinetry provides a place
for the family dog to have room to eat somewhat out of the way.
"In the new kitchen design, creative space planning, a restrained color
palette and the use of reflective surfaces make the room feel much more expansive within the same footprint,"said Machado-Rosas."Even though â
the space is small, it looks interesting and inviting."
