Chefs have definite ways to lay out their work spaces and collaborating with them is always fun and informative. World famous yet incredibly down to earth is Jacques Pepin. His studio kitchen in Madison was designed by Philippe Campus, AIA who we have had the pleasure our working with on many projects throughout the years. Jacques had a specific way he wanted his knives stored in the island and we created a special slotted block inserted into the island material. The kitchen was eclectic in the European tradition with tiles hand painted by Jacques himself juxtaposition with clean modern maple cabinetry and stainless steel and antique table and chairs. A section of the kitchen opened up to the porch and yard for entertaining.
- Integrated island hood
