Inside-Outside Kitchen, by Benn + Penna
Which is the best family meeting room? The Kitchen, no doubt. Benn + Penna architects know it!
Then why people continue designing closed small spaces instead of creating open wide relationship spaces?
There are a lot of great examples, and we have shown some before. But this kitchen is a great combination of interior and exterior spaces. It is well known that these kind of exterior spaces are limited to a very special kind of buildings. But in a conventional flat, it is also possible to find different ways to transform the kitchen into the meeting point of the house.
Fear of that messy kitchen when there are visitors? 99% of the time in all the houses in the world, there are only its owners. There is a certain tendency to project the houses for “the day that”: the day that there are visits, the day that there is disorder, the day that we cook sardines, the day that … That day, in fact, happens very rarely. And yes, if you have visitors at home, they will see all that mess!
