Photo detail

The starting point in designing the Tersio-Dobrauchi gourmet kitchen was a 4-foot-by-12-foot food preparation island that parallels a six-burner gas range. The surface is Italian marble. The 4,500-square-foot residence is a modular home designed by the owners who wanted to explore how completely they could customize the original plan. The house will be open to the public June 11.
