These ideas highlight the relationship between the kitchen and the surrounding architecture. Here we see a reminder that the relationship between these two separate elements is crucial and that it would be naive to think that they are independent!
And it’s not to say that a contemporary kitchen needs to be placed into a modern dwelling; it can actually mean the complete opposite, with appropriately designed contemporary kitchens providing the quirky contradiction to a traditionally designed period dwelling. The deciding factor in all of this, and the one thing that determines the success of any design are the individual preferences of the personalities who animate the space. Getting the balance right can create a functional, calming influence on our home lives!
