Chung Family

The Chung family wanted to create a warm and inviting environment that provided an open flow between the kitchen, family room, mudroom and open loft. The existing 1980s space was cramped, narrow and not very functional.

Project Duration

104 Days


$200K – $300k


Our first challenge during this kitchen remodeling project was to widen the existing space to accommodate custom cabinetry and various design elements, which the family fell in love with. However, widening the space required relocating a lengthy span of the main load-bearing wall. Instead of the traditional, costly method of relocating the span, we devised a custom support system utilizing a structural load bearing column, which is hidden in a custom pocket created in a void space in the new cabinetry. The concept accomplished saving our clients thousands of dollars and had no impact on the aesthetic appeal because the support system was flush with the existing ceiling with no loss of space.
