The model kitchen for the Palisades addresses four common objectives:

  1. Demonstrates the creative use of the developer’s standard finish and appliance package.
  2. Maintains a “modern” appearance, consistent with the building’s image, but appeals to both traditional and contemporary buyers.
  3. Exploits the amenities of the project and the model unit’s location.
  4. Creates a kitchen that is not only practical, but memorable.

Seizing an unexpected opportunity, the designers captured raised floor space remaining from an elevator override for a wine cellar. The wall above the wet bar can now access this unique “found” amenity.
