In this little house of mine are two bedrooms, a water closet and a Master Bedroom with an en-suite facility complete with a Walk-in Closet.
What I particularly love about it is the Entertainment Area that forms the Lounge, the Dining, the Breakfast Nook and the three zoned Kitchen.
Among the three zones you find in this Kitchen is, of course, the Cooker Zone that’s basically a counter fitted with a hob on it’s surface and a hood (also known as an Extractor) right above it; a central movable work table which helps create a Workstation where about four Formica chairs can just as easily be introduced as an extension to the Dining as an informal one. This is perfect for entertaining. While cabinets fitted against a wall across the Cooker Zone accommodate all manner of crockery for this little house of mine.
Just like most modern Kitchens, and if this wasn’t apparent already, this is an Open plan Kitchen so naturally a Scullery was introduced. This is also called a “Second Kitchen” in some Culinary Arts circles since the space is an extension of the Kitchen where a sink is found and where the eyesore of dirty dishes can be tucked behind.
I wouldn’t be doing this little house of mine justice if I didn’t design for a Pantry. The idea was to have just a small space where to store groceries and some bottles of wine for many of those “nights”.
In the end, the success of the house lies in it’s fluidity of spaces especially for a person or a family that loves entertaining, and also for the cost savings achieved with the design by use of a hidden roof and partly in it’s layout.
