Haute Cuisine: A Kitchen in a New York City High-Rise Apartment by Susan Huckvale Arann

A project by my firm, American & International Designs, was recently featured on Cultivate, a terrific website dedicated to the best modern kitchen ideas. It’s a galley kitchen we did in a New York City apartment building, and though it’s quite small it’s big in eco-friendly features—in fact, the whole high-rise uses 33 percent less water than non-green buildings, thanks to on-site recycling of waste water. A bright and bold color palette gives the kitchen a contemporary, energetic edge. Plus, with a design that’s both functional and aesthetically pleasing, it will stay in style for years to come.
