Vroom for Cookin’ | Kitchens & Baths 2012

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

Style: Masculine

Architect: Brandon Architects, Inc.

Project: Newport Classic Cars

Location: Costa Mesa, CA

Don't Miss: The kitchen is at the center of a classic car-collection showroom, so the colors and materials evoke a ’50s aesthetic without being kitschy. The play between vintage and modern accentuates the cars’ sleek, flowing lines.

Details: A bold backsplash of red subway tiles adds more punch to the otherwise stark car gallery

The 36-inch Italian Bertazzoni Ferrari Range is painted in the patented Ferrari red paint purchased from the Ferrari factory. The client was very excited to find an appliance with such a strong link to automobiles, and it inspired the whole look of the kitchen and other great details throughout the showroom.

Right now, the garage houses 23 classic cars. See that Corvette Sting Ray in the background? It’s won some major show awards, which is no small feat in LA’s crazy car-collector scene.

Installed with the drywall, beveled, unfinished aluminum corners catch your eye from certain angles and add to the showroom's richness. 

Durable Ceasarstone countertops provide a narrow countertop profile and match the lobby’s muted floating staircase.

All the structural columns, including the one that punches through the kitchen island, are painted Ferrari red.
