Mediterranean Estate Artisan Home Tour 2019 with Nor-Son Custom Builders

This gorgeous Mediterranean Estate-style home was built in collaboration with Nor-Son Custom Builders, Brooke Voss and Jim McNeil, and features custom wood finishes by Robert Chickey.

For this kitchen, our goal was to fully integrate the cabinetry into the architecture of the home. There were four large cabinets designed initially as pillars to support an intricate beam layout in the kitchen. To take this concept further, we decided to panel the cabinetry into the windows, created the butler pantry as a fully integrated experience with the same paneling extending from floor-to-ceiling, and wrapped the range hood with a custom molding taking design cues from the massive kitchen island co-designed with Brooke Voss.

“This was my first project with Brian and Crew. The attention to detail and creativity are what helps set them apart from other companies. Their ability to think outside the box helps them to be one step ahead of the competition. I look forward to many more projects.”

Below is the diagram that illustrates the complexity of the beam layout in relation to the cabinetry. We created a plan for executing sophisticated symmetry, layout, spacing and reveals relying on the expertise for electrical and framing provided by Wade Stock, the job supervisor at Nor-Son.

The staircase landing in this home offered an opportunity to make a statement. To achieve this, we provided custom-CNC-cut wall shapes for the framers to use for construction, allowing us to seamelessly integrate the built-in cabinetry and paneling into the shaped wall.

Designed using Fusion 360, the custom vents shown below play off the styling of the lighting featured above the kitchen island. The vents are machined into the oversized molding that wraps the marble range hood.

Below are other examples of cabinetry throughout the home that we co-designed with Brooke Voss.
