The challenge was to build a thoughtful, efficient, luxurious kitchen within a small, defined space. This kitchen is in the home of two Apple executives in Palo Alto, CA, who value high design and high quality as well as sensibility and an efficient use of space.

The kitchen is in a house that is only 969 square feet above ground, with the primary living space all on the above ground level. Its located in the heart of Silicon Valley blocks from Palo Alto's famed University Avenue.
