Innovations: A sculptural stainless steel GE hood over the concrete-topped island keeps the room open. The counter is a natural place
for Sony's VDC-LS1 tabletop, which has a built-in keyboard cover designed for kitchen use. A web-based security video system
from iControl monitors the entrance path, pool, and patio.
Takeaway idea: One side of the red-accented island functions as a breakfast bar or buffet. Stainless steel stools tuck under the counter.
