The modern kitchen is a gathering place. It was not always so. Modern technology and appliances have transitioned the modern kitchen from a room of musty smells and an open combustion source into a proper room for entertaining and gathering. Where did you hang out at the last party you attended? Probably the kitchen. This kitchen in Annapolis is designed to be there on a daily basis for the family, but cleans up nicely to be a gracious host for a much larger extended family. Wine glasses are in sight, the counter becomes a buffet and there's miles of counter edge to park your butt against. There are no moldings or fussy details in this modern aesthetic, just simple straight lines to keep things feeling light and spacious.
