Zen Kitchen by Hanomoco Design


Earlier this year I shot two projects with the newly-founded Hanomoco Design (a partnership between designers Dan Hano and Charlotte Moco) and my longtime client McCutcheon Construction. Dan and Charlotte have come out of the gate strong and this project in particular struck me as unique.


I tried to keep the photos clean and simple, following the aesthetic of the space, and with such great lines it was a real pleasure to compose photographs in there! There’s more from Hanomoco coming soon: meantime, here’s the rest of our set from this project.

Master Suite by McCutcheon

Several weeks ago I returned to the address of this project to shoot the newly completed Master Suite, upstairs. I had seen this while it was still under construction, and even visited the site once or twice to take “before” and “in-progress” photos. Here’s what the bath, pictured above, looked like back in May:

See the “before” photo, and photos of the rest of the project, after the jump!

McCutcheon Construction Wins Again!

A few months ago I had the pleasure of announcing that this kitchen remodel, which I shot over a year ago for McCutcheon Construction, had won 5th place in the CaesarStone Kitchen Design contest, and was subsequently featured in Women’s Day Kitchen & Bath.

Today, I’m happy to boast that this project has won Grand Prize in the Bay Area Remmies! In addition to Grand Prize, it also took First Prize for Residential Interior (over $100,000).

Jan McCutcheon holds the plaque!

Best part: Feedback from the judges specifically mentioned that the photography was part of what they liked about the project…..aw, shucks, folks! (scuffs feet)

I’m told that we’re now off to the Nationals……judging is in April 2011, I’ll update then!

Here’s a few more from that project. Congrat’s to Mike, Jan, and the team at McCutcheon!

McCutcheon Construction Wins Contest, Published in Women’s Day K and B

It was almost 10 months ago that I shot a spectacular kitchen and bath remodel in Oakland California for McCutcheon Construction. It was a great project and I got to work with Rochelle Silberman, (then) the head designer at McCutcheon. Rochelle was very hands-on during the construction and knew the project literally inside and out. We made some terrific photos that day, and McCutcheon went on to win 5th place with my photos in the CaesarStone Kitchen Design contest. The image above was designed with a print ad in mind, with plenty of space for text in the upper right corner.

The kitchen was completely re-designed by Rochelle, moving appliances and replacing everything from floor to ceiling. Locally made bamboo cabinets were matched with a linear-patterned glass tile backsplash. The warm-toned horizontal lines were broken only by the clean white of the CaesarStone countertop. Lots of attention to detail here, with electrical outlets hidden in the underside of the cabinets to preserve the unbroken lines of the backsplash, some snazzy cabinetry design, and flawless transitions from one material to another.

Following the contest win, the project was published in Women’s Day Kitchen and Bath, as part of a before-and-after “Style Updates” article.

Congrats to McCutcheon, and below are a couple more images from the project!
