Gorgeous, functional and fully customized walk-in closets, built-in units, modern vanities and all-purpose storage solutions at KI Atelier will transform your home
Kitchen Infinity Atelier—Gastown’s immersive kitchen and cabinetry design experience where blueprints and samples are only the beginning. Step inside the 7,000-square-foot, family-owned showroom and discover a world where your drawings, design dreams, and Pinterest musings are welcome among the designers’ expertise, and custom, luxury spaces take shape.
“We invite high-end, DYI-curious homeowners to explore the showroom and explore their Q&As and wish lists with our design team,” says Carlos Muller, principal with KI Atelier.
This is where the magic happens, as clients can explore the project elements—colour, texture, surfaces and storage options—and make changes on the fly. The best part? KI Atelier has most of the hardware, cabinets, drawers and other components in the showroom, configured in sample layouts.
Known for its gorgeous custom kitchen designs, KI Atelier goes beyond, supplying complete millwork packages for the entire home, including closets, built-in units, TV and living room units, closets, and modern vanities. In fact, nearly any custom storage solution is possible.
“Our approach is to go through an exhaustive interview process with the customer and resolve their storage needs by checking on the volumes of articles that are to be stored and designing their custom furniture to fit it efficiently and access it ergonomically,” Muller says.
Renowned Italian kitchen manufacturer Aran Cucine, known for its world-class quality craftsmanship and design, brings elegance to KI Atelier millwork packages—particularly with its Night series, the perfect addition to any walk-in or reach-in closet, bedroom or dressing area.
Envision a walnut island with an optional glass top, customizable drawers and sliding shelves—each piece made 100% in Italy with exquisite detail. Outer wardrobe doors might be dressed in eco-leather, fabric, high-gloss lacquer, glass or wood, while the interior goes beyond shelves and drawers to customizable shirt storage, pull-out trouser racks, shoe racks, elegant glass pull-out shelves, drawers with small compartments for ties or jewelry, and built-in LED lighting. If you can dream it, Aran can supply it.
These gorgeous pieces are also environmentally savvy—Aran produces everything it sells from recycled, ethical sustainable materials. Its mainly Forest Stewardship Council certified wood is processed at its facility, which operates an internal waste collection system that recycles 90% of its waste. Soon, Aran will be self-sufficient, thanks to its four solar plants and more on the way.
KI Atelier’s space at 101 Water St. has beautiful displays of custom storage and millwork components, cleverly peppered between the kitchen displays.
“The immersive experience means every design dollar spent on the project is productive,” Muller says. “Our design mandate is to ensure that the project is as beautiful as the client’s dreams, yet functional every step of the way.”
