If the kitchen of this remodeled Washington, D.C., row house has you wondering when the party’s going to start, you’ve got the right idea. Owner and general contractor Lenny Ilkovich entertains a lot, and his nightclub-like kitchen was designed to be the center of activity. Architect Richard Loosle of D.C.-based Kube Architecture combined the home’s three separate first-floor rooms into a single, continuous space, defining the kitchen with a dropped ceiling, dark porcelain floor tiles, and black-stained ash base cabinets with a black Caesarstone countertop. A vividly contrasting green countertop draws guests to the full-length island, while LED lighting recessed into the walls and ceiling changes colors to suit the mood of any occasion.
