These bright victorian kitchens are so inspirational……bla bla

This project involved the 3 year renovation of the George C. Thomas House, a historic double-wide urban townhouse in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood of Philadelphia. Completed in 1874 by the Hewitt Brothers with the assistance of Frank Furness, the house combines a French Second Empire exterior with interior details that epitomize Furness’ Victorian exuberance.The Conservatory opens directly into a new Kitchen that transformed a previous kitchen, serving pantry and breakfast alcove into a one large room. The portal between the Kitchen and Conservatory was restructured and enlarged to enhance the flow from one room to another.The ceiling and window wall were reconfigured and extended in height to match the scale of the Conservatory and provide an open vista to the rear dining terrace and garden. The rear of the property culminates in a raised patio and outdoor fireplace.
