The former kitchenette was obtained by opening the wall to a closet next to the original eat-in kitchen. The basic single row shape offered little work top space and the base units in the narrow right corner were difficult to use. The dining room was characterized by a jumble of different furniture together with the refrigerator, which hadn’t found space in the alcove.
The first thought was to make the most out of the space without weighing down the ambient. Using high wall cabinets didn’t make much sense, given the lady’s small stature, therefore it was important to organize well the base units. The narrow and unusable angle on the right side is the ideal place for the sink cabinet and the hydraulic connections, the niche under the window is profound enough for a wall unit transformed into a base cabinet and adds precious worktop space. In this way there is even adequate room for a 75 cm large hob.
Decluttering and organizing well the dining side, it is possible to place a refrigerator and pantry column close to the kitchen. The elevated oven creates both a connection to the columns and at the same time a visual separation to the dining room and leaves space for a large drawer unit under the hob.
The dining room furniture remain the same, except for an old, patched up display case that was poorly matched to the rest. The trendy pending lamps spice up the traditional furniture and make the overall image more contemporary. The light green walls let the room appear larger and create balance to the warm colour of the furniture.
