Modern Design Paired with Traditional Asian Furniture

This is the first project for Jason Fung Architect Inc. in design collaboration with Ilya Skok.  The design challenge was pairing a modern design with existing antique Chinese furniture - which was requested by the client that the furniture was to remain. 


Through various design iterations, a material palette for the new kitchen was developed to compliment the furniture.  The cabinets and cupboards are of a reconstituted wenge veneer, and the backsplash is a handmade dual-glazed ceramic tile by Heath Ceramics - imported from San Francisco.  We feel the dark wood and the green tile paired well together with the traditional Chinese furniture.
