Kitchen of the Week: A Harmonious New Kitchen for a 1970s A-Frame
How to gracefully incorporate a new kitchen in a vintage A-frame? The owners of this 1970s kit house in Springs, New York—the once affordable Hamptons hamlet that Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner called home—opted for a European-style kitchen systems approach. The couple, who are both in television production and come from the UK and Europe, had worked with Henrybuilt on their Manhattan kitchen and appreciated the company’s devotion to impeccable craftsmanship and clean-lined functionality.
For their A-frame, they chose the brand’s simpler, more affordable system, Space Theory. “The kitchen was designed to feel true to the house,” says Molly Waring of Henrybuilt. “The materials hearken to those from the age of the architecture: laminate, aluminum, and touches of wood that dialogue with the structure.” The results manage to look tailored and timelessly modern—and at home. See if you agree.
