Graciela and Dieter Lorenzen purchased an unfinished unit in the prestigious Residences at the Stoneleigh in Uptown Dallas.
Their vision was to start form the ground up to create a pied-à-terre that would help them enjoy the passions shared by their entire family: cooking, Dallas football, and art curated from their extensive travels.
To implement their vision, they enlisted their childhood friend and renowned designer, Gonzalo Bueno, principal of Ten Plus Three. The couple and Gonzalo grew up in the same neighborhood of Monterrey, Mexico. The trio worked with Chris Esguerra, eggersmann New York designer, to create a kitchen and bar area for the couple’s new home away from home.
With cooking and entertaining, especially during games, being so important to them and their 3 adult children with their own families, the kitchen was placed centrally in the residence. The kitchen is the focal point upon entering the front doors.
Though the center of the residence, the kitchen melts away visually with the use of a monochromatic palette in “elephant shades” throughout the home and use of flat handleless cabinet fronts to conceal all storage and appliances. The restful palette, front styles, and interesting textural finishes achieve the modern and elegant aesthetic the Lorenzens desired. The mirrored upper cabinets in Bronze Mirror finish open up the space, add interest, and reflect light throughout.
The stone kitchen island and perimeter counters were designed using eggersmann’s unique collection in Nero Assoluto Waterjet Granite. The large island open to the dining area and living room with oversized TV for family enjoyment serves as a gathering area. Base cabinets are finished in Dark Oak Rough Sawn.
The homeowners requested a bar area in the living room area that was hidden when not in use. For a modern minimal look, we used tall folding pocket doors that disappear when the bar is being used and completely conceal when closed.
According to the Lorenzens, when open it is a favorite seating area for family. The bar fronts are finished in the same ebonized oak as the kitchen.
