Transitional Rowhouse Kitchen in Georgetown, Washington DC

Design by Sarah Turner   


This kitchen won Second Place in the Medium Kitchen category for the NKBA Baltimore/Washington Chapter Kitchen and Bath Design Awards in March 2016.

JGKB worked with architect Christian Zapatka to renovate this turn-of-the-century rowhouse. Our plan included updating the finishes and bringing the cabinets into the twenty first century. We also wanted to increase the flow between the outdoor patio and art studio to the living space in the front. 

The existing kitchen included the original outdoor alley that used to go from the front to the backyard and a brick pizza oven whose chimney extended to the roof. With all these structural impediments in place, this project needed careful space planning. 

We increased the countertop space on both sides of the sink by moving the cooktop to the island. Using stainless steel doors on the cabinets above the fridge and oven columns, we created additional visual height and balance. This helps anchor the space between, allowing for floating shelves to display an international collection of accessories. 

The handpainted backsplash tile is by Walker Zanger, available through Architectural Ceramics. The color is “Mezzanotte.”
