Great Rooms

THEN: (right)

Though lovely, this house (orig­i­nally fea­tured in 1999) has one fa­tal flaw in re­gard to modern de­sign — the main liv­ing area is not open to the kitchen. As at­trac­tive as the log arch­way is, it di­vides the space and keeps the res­i­dent chef from fully in­ter­act­ing with guests.

NOW: (be­low)

To­day’s ap­proach to de­sign is to­tal open-con­cept in­te­gra­tion, cre­at­ing a true “great room.” There are no lines be­tween liv­ing, cook­ing and din­ing spa­ces, and in­cred­i­ble care is taken to make them feel co­he­sive.
