Parrilla Kitchen and Pool Terrace 2015/2021
Completed in two phases, this project first converted a historic 1910 carriage house in Cincinnati, Ohio into a modern entertainment kitchen and dining space featuring a new parrilla grill/fireplace. A parrilla (origin: Argentina) is a cooking grill whose grilling surface is raised or lowered over an open fire.
The finished kitchen remodel includes a new oak bead-board ceiling, oak cabinetry, and tile flooring. New painted electrical conduit echoes the black finishes of lighting fixtures and fans.
The original glazed and badly weathered interior brick wall surfaces needed sandblasting and new paint. Original carriage doors were stripped, painted and re-glazed. They sit open in good weather to expand the entertainment space into the adjacent motor court. The open doors perfectly frame the parrilla grill in this modern kitchen remodel.
Secondly the pool terrace was added in 2021 including plastered walls at a new staircase which provide a layered separation between motor court and terrace while providing a connection between existing house kitchen, the new parrilla kitchen and the new pool terrace.
