Their portfolio includes projects up and down the west coast, from large to small. But we were most intrigued by the range of kitchens designed by Buttrick Wong Architects. Four of the more inventive ones are shared here...

The top photo shows a subdued kitchen in Berkeley. With a muted palette and simple forms, this kitchen plays it very cool.

This Redwood City kitchen has striking blue cabinets that remind us of Small Cool 2007's London Urchin's foldout kitchen.

And this kitchen has efficient uses packed into it at all heights: a way-high display shelf accessed by ladder, upper cabinets, a little cup shelf below, a counter-height work surface and book case, and table-height dining all in one space!

The wall-mount Tolomeos above these counters provide lighting but also a whole lot of visual interest. We must say, we haven't seen these armed lamps used in this application before, but we like the idea of directional task lighting at the kitchen's work surface.

To see the rest of their work, kitchens and all, visit Buttrick Wong Architects.
