I'm now a fan of New York based HS2 Architecture since coming across their website. They have quite a knack at mixing modern architecture with rustic finishes which is always a favourite of mine, and make such great use of outdoor views in their designs. The 4 kitchens below are each very different but all soooooo fantastic.
A balance between restoration and intervention ... that's how Martin Young Design describe their work on this 1907 San Francisco house. The past is acknowledged and lovingly restored but contemporary finishes and furnishings add a fresh, new layer. A modern way of living with history.
