The vertical grained bamboo veneer of the cabinetry plays out against the strong horizontals in the cantilevered peninsula and wall shelf. Cubic forms carried by the fused glass hood, tall cabinetry and the island reflect the feel of the city skyline, especially at night. To enhance its impact, ornamentation is limited.

The apparent contrast in thickness between the quartz countertop and the thinner dimension of the stainless steel repeats the sculpture of the hood and the shelf above the sink.
