The maple ApplePly and black walnut cabinet is adjacent to a kitchen and provides a variety of functions: shoe storage, device charging and storage, kitchen overflow, dog walking accouterments storage, and display space. The kitchen was designed by engage:ARCHITECTURE and had been completed in 2011, and it was important that the annex connect well with the kitchen. The clean lines of the mitrered ApplePly boxes contrast well with the inset black walnut doors and drawers (and accent white laminate drawer front). Push-to-open hardware negates the need for visible pulls and adds to the simple, unified look of the annex. The layout of the upper cabinets and glass shelves extend the skylight element and take advantage of the natural light.
