Two thick matching concrete countertops grace this Northwest kitchen. The elements were precast, then installed to form one large, continuous counter and an island. Both countertops feature oblique angles and a bed of river rock that flows through the kitchen. Note the offset joints and the interesting shape of the sink. The similarly colored island countertop (not shown) is a squared off "S" shape and includes a second sink.
