Challenged with a dual mission, DiMaio was called upon to re-interpret a New York kitchen into a modern functional kitchen for a collector of photographs and simultaneously fulfill the client's vision to create a space for the display of his sepia-toned photographs of Roman antiquity.

DISPLAY BOX: Here she finds another form of validation in the successful co-existence of two realms; the kitchen for what it is, albeit beautifully detailed w it h lush materials, and as the display case where photographs are cantilevered from hidden brackets as if floating or sliding. They are counterpointed by replicas of ancient bronze statuary intended for inflection and figural juxtaposition.
