To accommodate the height of one of the homeowners, all of the kitchen and bathroom counters were raised up two inches higher than usual.

A black band runs along the bottom of the cabinetry to prop up the standard-sized appliances to the proper height.

A custom copper kitchen backsplash and vent hood, courtesy of metalwork artist Thomas Studio and Foundry, is a response to the rammed earth, nodding to the fiery oranges while infusing the space with a very different satiny-metal texture. “It’s really a sculptural element,” says Corral.
