“History combined with modern technology” is the central theme of the Springer’s kitchen. The use of rectilinear forms and horizontal vertical lines create a strong sense of the Arts & Crafts period. The identity and integrity of the Arts & Crafts movement is reflected in the cabinetry, millwork design, and materials used. Layered lighting is achieved through the balance of task lighting, daylight and fireplace light to create a visual emphasis to the textures of the materials and finishes. The over-all loo of the kitchen is a grand tapestry of history and efficiency in style, fabric and space planning.
