His-and-Hers Sinks: Now His-and-Hers Kitchens?

August 23, 2017

The popularity of cooking shows, such as Chopped, Iron Chef, Hell's Kitchen, you get the theme... are rallying more couples to cook together at home.  His-and-Hers appliances are becoming a trend in modern kitchen design.  For these foodies and culinary teammates -  two of everything is heating up the kitchen.  Designers are implementing this trend in many of the newly constructed residential developments in New York City.

 

Gramercy Square

 

Gramercy Square’s four architecturally distinct residential buildings (The Tower, The Boutique, The Prewar and The Modern) were conceived and designed by architecture firm, Wood Bagot and built by Clipper Equity and The Chetrit Group. The spacious kitchens at The Boutique, a collection of eight full-floor residences, are each equipped with two Sub-Zero refrigerators, two top-of-the-line ovens, and a stovetop. All design materials and finishes––including white painted oak cabinetry, honed Calacatta marble countertops and backsplash, and walnut toned flooring––are by Italy-based design firm Canova.

“With the Union Square farmers market steps away from the Gramercy Square residences, haute cuisine will meet haute living,” says Erin Hynes, an associate at Woods Bagot. “With the growth of artisanal cooking by home chefs, the kitchen was designed to provide a wonderful space for amateur Food Network stars.”

 

One West End

 

Custom, Jeffrey Beers-designed Scavolini kitchens, with two of every appliance, are integrated into every residence at One West End by Elad Group and Silverstein Properties. Select residences feature two ovens, dishwashers, sinks, baking stations, and coffee stations in each eat-in kitchen, designed with Dornbracht fixtures; walnut cabinets with champagne matte glass panels; and Calacatta Borghini marble on the waterfall edge countertops, backsplash, and cabinetry framing. Appliances include a Wolf cooktop, range, and two ovens; a Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine refrigerator; and two Miele dishwashers. A built-in coffee system by Miele, separate baking station, and bar station complete these state-of-the-art, contemporary kitchens. The 42-story condominium is the first and tallest residential tower to rise in the new neighborhood of Riverside Center on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

“I love hosting with my family at our home in New York. It’s the perfect opportunity to cook with the ones you love and to entertain your closest and dearest friends,” says architect Jeffrey G. Beers, founder and CEO of Jeffrey Beers International. “That passion and my inclusive lifestyle drives me and my team to design modern kitchens with dual amenities. We like the idea that the kitchen is a shared spaces for couples, families, and friends to cook, unwind, and laugh together.”
