In the early 1930’s, a series of 5 executive homes were built in North Seattle on a piece of land purchased by William E. Boeing, founder of The Boeing Company. One of these stately brick homes, appropriately dubbed “the Boeing Castles” by local residents, was recently revived with a modern mix of materials including PentalQuartz countertops. Seattle-based company Model Remodel partnered with Satterberg Desonier Dumo Design to complete a tasteful update, protecting the original charm and character of the residence while creating a modern look to carry it into the next era.
By opening up two walls, the once closed off kitchen was transformed into an open-concept space, blending into the adjacent living room and brightening the main living spaces. While keeping original architectural details like a hexagonal window in-tact, the kitchen received a complete makeover with a bright and contemporary white on white palette. All cabinetry and appliances were updated and the counters topped with PentalQuartz in Statuario. A peninsula island adds in-kitchen seating for two and provides a perfect spot for morning coffee. Textured glass inset into upper cabinets adds a delicate, vintage element to the modern kitchen, adding to the character of the historic property.
Classic white 3×6”subway tile moves through the backsplash of the kitchen and continues into the shower of a nearby bathroom. A cool grey vanity topped with PentalQuartz in Carrara pairs perfectly with a natural marble tile floor similar to our Carrara Marble Tile in 1” Hexagon Mosaic.
