I modeled the kitchen in Case Study House 9 based on the 1950 picture taken by Julius Shulman. Since the photo is in black and white, I used grayscale colors to try to capture the same look and feel. For my variation, I opened all of the doors and drawers in the kitchen to reveal the emptiness of model houses, such as the Case Study houses, which are more like objects than homes. The light from the refrigerator serves as a new light source in the variation, adding an extra amount of gloom to the deserted kitchen.
