Architect turned shoe designer Tinker Hatfield designed this spunky space with an emphasis on the environment. Get this: The
island is a handmade surfboard crafted from recycled wine vats! Exposed shelving provides a place to display glassware and
maintains an open, airy feel. Formaldehyde-free cabinetry and doors, low-VOC paints, and Energy Star–rated kitchen appliances
ensure that this kitchen is just as easy on the environment as it is on the eyes. “Good architecture doesn’t try to just copy
the past, but contributes to the future,” Tinker says.
