A Stylish New Kitchen

POSTED: October 4th 2013

Niraj and Jill Shah were hardly novices to renovations. So they didn’t require an architect when they decided to remodel their summer house in Osterville. Although the renovation tacked on 2,000 square feet, the Shah’s were focused more on “better” than “bigger.” Simply, they wanted a home that was more suited for entertaining on weekends. Photography by Amber Barricman Appliances Sourced from: KAM Appliances “We lived in the house for a year to get an idea of how we would use the space, and that drove the enhancement. We entertain quite a bit in the summer, and we wanted to open up the house and make it more cohesive,” Jill said. For a project that featured expansi Click here to read more.

When a developer had a piece of property on Provincetown’s active Commercial Street he turned to Richard Pozzo, owner of Sesuit Building in Dennis and Dave Murray, director of marketing and business development of KAM, who sells reliable, high-end appliances from storied brands such as Viking, Thermador, Wolf, and Sub-Zero.

A Tale of Two Award-Winning Kitchens

POSTED: October 4th 2013

While the most obvious facets of a kitchen—flooring, cabinets and color scheme--may grab the eye first, it is the components such as the range, sparkling hood and refrigeration and warming appliances that anchor a kitchen. Clarke, the exclusive New England distributors of high-end appliances from Sub-Zero and Wolf, recently held a design contest to identify New England’s best designers. David Hacin of Hacin and Associates Inc. was awarded First Place for a Contemporary Kitchen, and Jan Gleysteen of Jan Gleysteen Architects Inc. took Second Place for a Traditional Kitchen.
