Tour a Midcentury Modern Kitchen in Stonington
Architect Joeb Moore remodeled this space while preserving the home's unique construction.
All of these materials are especially at play in the kitchen, where blackened stainless steel behind the range offers contrast for the island countertop’s raw stainless steel and architectural-grade concrete on the floor. “All we did was pour concrete and polish and wax it,” Moore explains, adding that the material picks up on the stone outside.
The landscape also gives the kitchen its unique layout: an open L-shape that affords a spacious range, roomy island, eat-in dining area and long wall of cabinetry that stretches to the center of the house and the mudroom—all open to the view of the meadow and waterfront beyond. “The shelves are natural wood, and the countertop is a white concrete, and everything is open to the outdoor space,” Moore explains. “That’s very key to all of our work. There is always this constant dialogue between the outside rooms and inside rooms.”
