Design Team: Giraffe Design Build

Lead Architectural Designer: Steven Varnum

Build Team: Giraffe Design Build

Lead Carpenter: Jeff Clark

Location: Ann Arbor MI

Completion Date: 2012


This pivotal design+build project was a dream come true for both Giraffe and the homeowners. Working in collaboration, the transformation of this disconnected space became one of continuity and flow, with ease of movement throughout the kitchen and into the dining area.

The mixed aesthetic balances eclectic selections of old and new – distressed wood beam, mixed woods and metals – creating a harmonious space. The hammered metal range hood juxtaposed with the polished metal light fixtures, and the tiles around the range elegantly pull together the elements.
