Shared space

It's where all pathways meet: a dining area, a kitchen, a fireplace.

Designing a well-balanced house layout might seem like solving a puzzle: ergonomics, proportions, function, natural light distribution... Having a blank page, I start with these binding points. It's where the soul of the house should come alive.

  12. really beautiful space. the kitchen is stunning! I thought about why and what in general. For my personally is why more important but when something is done in public like politics or ... a blog :-) what is more important. It's interesting question :-)
