This Lafayette residential kitchen project is an exquisite example of how thoughtful design and meticulous execution can transform a kitchen into a functional and stylish space. Led by architect Bacilia Macias, this project involved an addition to the home and the creation of a new kitchen that seamlessly integrates modern amenities with classic design elements.


One of the key features of this project is the 4 ft. x 26 ft. addition, which provided the necessary space to accommodate the new kitchen layout. The addition included a new foundation, framing, windows, French doors, and siding, ensuring structural integrity and aesthetic coherence with the rest of the home.


The kitchen itself boasts an array of high-quality features that elevate the cooking and dining experience. New cabinets were installed, offering ample storage space and a sleek appearance. The marble countertops add a touch of luxury and elegance, while the oak hardwood floor provides warmth and durability. The choice of materials not only enhances the kitchen’s visual appeal but also ensures its longevity and ease of maintenance.


Natural light is a crucial element in any kitchen, and this project addresses this with the installation of Velux skylights. These skylights flood the space with sunlight, creating a bright, airy, inviting, and energy-efficient atmosphere. Additionally, recessed lighting and decorative low-voltage lights above the island ensure that the kitchen is well-lit, highlighting the beauty of the materials and making food preparation a pleasure.


In conclusion, the Lafayette residential kitchen project is a testament to the power of thoughtful design and quality craftsmanship. The addition of space, combined with the selection of premium materials and modern lighting solutions, has resulted in a kitchen that is not only beautiful but also highly functional. It is a perfect example of how a kitchen can be transformed into the heart of a home, where cooking and dining become a joyous and luxurious experience.
