Architect Bill Boehm packs a punch into his 8-by-13-foot space in Cambridge.
Architect Bill Boehm at work in the kitchen of his family's Cambridgeport condo with son Theo, 13. When he and his wife, an artist, bought the unit in a multifamily home, they knew the kitchen would need a major overhaul.
The couple's goal was to connect the kitchen with the dining room and instill a sense of airiness, despite the limited square footage. Stainless steel shelves from a restaurant supply company take the place of space-eating overhead cabinets.
Orange cabinets, a yellow pantry, and blue linoleum floors establish the palette.
