With the last touches to the Alcaraz-Arango kitchen complete, the new kitchen is in full use. The glass surface breakfast counter provides the finishing touch for this green kitchen renovation. Installed at a lower elevation for use as seating, the clever layout by kitchen designer Christina Raidt of Akzent Kuechen ( makes optimal use of the former breakfast space and still keeps in line with the sleek kitchen cabinets. Sebastian Eilert of Sebastian Eilert Architect ( selected the glass finish rather than the recycled glass tile installed on the main counter.

The metal edge to secure the glass and ¾ inch glass ensures that safety concerns for paying children and potential breaking glass were addressed. The glass now features the single support leg and increases the feel of open space on this side of the space.

With the kitchen cooking, the owner can now move to other parts of the house to continue with their greening of this great project.
