    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.

    Ben Farrell, owner and principal architect, is a graduate of Syracuse University but attributes most of his formative experiences to time spent in Florence, Italy and Copenhagen, Denmark. His curiosity with architecture came at a young age in Copenhagen by spray painting graffiti on the drab and boring ends of buildings that seemed otherwise forgotten. He legitimized this passion for unauthorized aesthetic improvement with an architectural education, some of which was spent studying the classics in the architecturally fecund areas of Tuscany. These contrasting experiences spawned an equally contentious philosophy that continues to juxtapose the respect of classical order with a modernity that says "nothing is sacred", improvement happens everywhere and sometimes the rules are just wrong. He resides in Southern Marin with a studio in Sausalito.
