We created an open kitchen by taking down a dividing wall that once created a stair hall. Adding an island offered additional counter space while a breakfast nook added more floor space. Down a flight of stairs, space was found every which way—digging down for ceiling height, tucking in cabinets under the stairs for storage, capturing an otherwise archaic masonry structure to be a new wine room.
