A Matte Black Kitchen Makes A Strong Statement Inside This Home

TRAMA arquitetos have recently completed a modern concrete home in Braga, Portugal, that includes a black kitchen.

The kitchen, which stands out in the mostly concrete, glass, and wood interior, features a wall of matte black minimalist cabinets (which also include a little door for access to a cat litter box), as well as a black wood ceiling with lighting positioned evenly between the slats.

The kitchen also includes a large island with dark gray stone, seating for four people, a cooktop, and an under-mount sink. Hanging above the island are three simple black pendant lights, while beneath the island, there’s hidden lighting.

Let’s take a look around the rest of the house.

At the front of the home, there are stone and weathered steel walls, exterior lighting that highlights the covered parking area, and a water feature with a garden by the front door.

The social areas of the home open to an outdoor kitchen and an expansive patio. There’s also a swimming pool and a secondary water feature that can be seen from the living room, which is also lit at night.
