Made for Entertaining

The owners of this home located in a historic Baltimore neighborhood wanted a much larger kitchen, and because they regularly entertained large numbers of guests, they wanted to improve flow throughout the house. The decision was made to create a gallery addition across the rear of the house, anchored at one end by a new kitchen addition. A dynamic 1-1/2 story breakfast room was created on axis with the entrance hall, and serves to bridge the kitchen and the gallery. A series of french doors allows the gallery to flow gracefully out to a new terrace, and a richly detailed coffered ceiling gives detail and rhythm to the fairly narrow gallery space. The design included a new mud room, and the creation of a new serving pantry, powder room, and bar.
