Country house meets luxury kitchen: a successfully implemented "culture clash" in residential format. Who wouldn't want to leave the city behind and start an idyllic farm life?
Don't we all sometimes catch ourselves dreaming of the romantic idea of living in the middle of the countryside, in peace and in harmony with nature? A dream of life that has come true for many: Blackberries are sprouting in your own garden, fresh lettuce is making itself at home and potatoes are also growing in the soil. All the ingredients for dinner are home-grown, so cooking takes on a whole new meaning. The kitchen is the focal point that connects everyone and everything. A lifestyle that the residents of this charming home in the Netherlands have also discovered for themselves.
In addition to the architectural claim, this LEICHT kitchen offers a use of space that is adapted to the needs: whether it's circulating drawer solutions in the island block, spacious and individually furnishable cupboard elements in the rear kitchen area or the generous work surface - hidden functions, optimal use of storage space, visual unity and open spaces describe this interior design concept. The direct continuation of the transverse kitchen is formulated by a generous concrete table that picks up on the clear lines and the naturally cool effect of the materials and creates a successful as well as communicative connection between the open living spaces. This is pure inspiration and a successful example of the combination of old and new: farmhouse meets modern architecture, solid wood meets black kitchen and concrete details, light-footedly floating and trustingly solid at the same time.
What does it look like when form follows function in the kitchen space? The clear architecture of a German home near Augsburg takes us on a design-historical journey.
