WOW !!! I love everything about it.
I wish I had done a similar layout when I remodeled my kitchen. I put my sink in the middle of things and I’m left with small work spaces. And I’m fascinated with the deep counter with the door at the back. What’s up with that?
Sure doesn’t look “cheap” to me. It’s elegant.

Thanks John,This is for a church. This is actually the Sacristy Room for the Priests. They requested the large counter top, but I’m unsure of the purpose. The drawers in that cabinet don’t go all the way to the back. Since this is kind of a multi purpose room, we created a space to store long items instead of wasting the space.
Thanks for the comment.

The long counter looks to be shallower than 25”. Is that some kind of reduced-depth dishwasher?
Also wondering about counter height. Is that ADA 34” or standard-residential 36” ?

No, the Counter is 25 1/2” deep. (24” deep cabinets) That is actually a small undercounter refer.We made the opening 24” wide so that it could be upgraded to either a bigger refer or a D.W. (You can see the fillers on each side.)
It’s 36” high, as per contractor. They have a lower sink in the adjoining room that I think passes for their ADA.

I’m sorta nuts for the detailing !!! I love the way the apron on the uppers goes vertical when the heights change. And then even the fillers repeat the same vertical lines. BRAVO !!!
I used to be an altar boy (believe it or not) so maybe the super-deep countertop has something to do with priests laying out their robes, or whatever the heck they call them, before they say mass.
I’m surprised that any public, or even semi-public, counters are allowed to be 36” anymore. That was always a prime target for my plan examiners—easy points.
