Parrilla Kitchen 2015


A parrilla (origin: Argentina) is a cooking grill whose grilling surface is raised or lowered over an open fire. This project converted a historic 1910 carriage house in Cincinnati, Ohio into a modern entertainment kitchen and dining space featuring a new parrilla grill/fireplace.

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.
