Napa Valley is famous for being among the finest wine-making regions in the world and, with its multiple vineyards and prestigious cellars, fine food culture, history, artistic and cultural events, it constitutes one of the most popular tourist attractions in California.
An exclusive villa, situated in the heart of Napa Valley, embraced by its soft hills, plays host to a special outdoor version of the Atelier professionally-derived kitchen designed and built to accommodate the typical needs of a kitchen Made in USA.
Aidlin Darling Design, the studio in charge of designing the Abimis indoor kitchen, joined forces with Abimis to put together a second « open-air » kitchen for the home-owners, placing it in the most bewitching part of the large expanse of greenery surrounding the home, distinguished by an extraordinary view of the landscape.
Made of cement, the kitchen compromises a grill and a barbecue, in full American cooking tradition, and it looks like a clean-cut architecture, with understated and rigorous silhouettes, reflecting the typical square-cut design of the Atelier line.
The practical worktop separates the two cooking methods, while the lower part of the kitchen is completed by a spacious visible wood storage compartment and AISI 304 stainless steel compartments made by Abimis, with anthracite finish doors and large ergonomically designed handles.
This project not only emphasises the experience of Abimis in making top-quality bespoke kitchens and solutions to accomodate specific space requirements (both indoors and outdoors) and the customer’s needs, but it also demostrates the ability of its elements to fit into the most diverse configurations, respecting their ‘calling’ and enhancing their distinguishing features.
