ideal collaboration

This renovated kitchen in Santa Fe is a modern take on Southwestern styles, says Building Adventures Unlimited Owner Bonifacio Armijo. Before the renovation, the kitchen already had the Southwest features, including the vigas, so Armijo was tasked with modernizing it. That included adding in a skylight to help brighten up the space. The renovation made the kitchen much more efficient and manageable for the homeowner to work in, says Armijo. New countertops were installed, as well as more storage solutions, such as the pot rack above the island stove and knotty alder cabinetry with shaker panels, custom made by his son’s firm. Working with the homeowner to complete this project was a good collaboration. “When we get a lot of teamwork, we come up with a great product,” Armijo says.
