Manhasset-based kitchen & interior designer Vasi Ypsilantis, owner of Poggenpohl Long Island, along with Sea Cliff-based interior designer Margreet Cevasco of Margreet Cevasco Design, partnered with Mitco Construction on Phase II, Project Design 2014, of the Kitchen & Dining renovation for the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island (RMH-LI), a respite for families of seriously ill children. Discover here some nice photos.
This is the second year the design duo poured their heart and soul into the Kitchen & Dining area renovations at the Ronald McDonald House Long Island. Project Design is an effort led by Kravet Fabrics along with the interior design industry to provide a calm and restful healing environment for families experiencing the pain of having a child in area hospitals.
“Our combination of design and contracting expertise enhances the project's creativity and functionality, since Margreet and I both employ a similar design aesthetic. Teaming up on renovations can be a challenge, but we’ve enjoyed 10 years of successful show house projects, residential renovations and endearing friendship. We share the same goal which is to make these dream kitchens and living spaces a reality for parents and families who are seeking the comforts of home,” said Vasi Ypsilantis.
Phase II includes an expanded 1,600 square foot open Kitchen & Dining area which has been transformed into a universally accessible living environment that’s spacious enough for multiple families to cook and dine simultaneously, while offering an uplifting and comfortable feeling. The contemporary space features several design and architectural details that accentuate the room and offer a dramatic outcome.
The layout of the installed Poggenpohl kitchen functions to support both cooking, storage and eating at any hour of the day or night and multiple integrated appliances complete the design. Additional shelves were built-in to the expanded pantry so each family can store grocery items, coffered ceilings and a juxtaposition of bold and neutral colors that brings in the outside mood.
The adjacent dining area with cozy banquette seating offers a soothing home-like setting that helps guests unwind and offers a moment of relaxation. “If we can allow families caring for their children in the neighboring hospital some comforts of home and a living space that supports them, then we have achieved our goal,” said Margreet Cevasco.
Several sponsors donated products and provided discounts worth over $300,000 in return for helping to promote a worthwhile cause. High-end products were selected for their timeless design and long lasting quality, providing a dramatic transformation to the kitchen & dining area where children and families gather to retreat, find sustenance and support.
