Explore Grid Appeared, Cooking Hubs and more!

Functional linear cooking “hubs” that feature sink and food prep areas along side a row of burners (vs. a square or a rectangular grid) appeared in quite a few displays at EuroCucina 2012 in Milan.

The home maintains remarkable material consistency, with Douglas fir cladding the beams, kitchen countertop, and interior walls.

A few big ideas—and some careful workmanship—transform the very small kitchen of a one-bedroom Brooklyn apartment into an expansive space suited to a young professional with a taste for design. The designers at Workstead devised a plan to use an offset grid of cabinets as a unifying element in slate gray that moves across the room and gives it a cool quietude. The backsplash tile is from Ann Sacks. Photo by: Jeremy Liebman This originally appeared in Dwell's Coolest Kitchens.

10 Modern Wood-Burning Stoves

A MODERN GLASS ADDITION IN BELGIUM For this tiny house in the Belgian forest, a little extra square footage comes in the form of a glassed-in addition with a stellar view. In the living area, a Tufty-Time sofa by Patricia Urquiola for B&B Italia, a Soft Grid blanket by Established & Sons, and a wood-burning stove by Stûv keep her comfortable.

Learn How to Connect with Nature from This Off-the-Grid Prefab

The kitchen island is topped with PaperStone in slate and wrapped in the same steel used to clad the house’s facade. “We matched the color to create a ‘2001: Space Odyssey’ monolith,” Garlick says. He and his wife, Susan Elliott, a chef, cook at the commercial Wolf range they purchased at a restaurant supply store.

A Clean Slate

Choosing tile for the kitchen backsplash was the biggest struggle of the project, according to Brechbuehler. They settled on light gray horizontal bars by Ann Sacks.

A prefabricated off-the-grid vacation home in eastern Washington provides not just a getaway, but lessons in learning to be one with the land. The steel cladding has developed a patina similar to the ochre-red color of bedrock found in the area. This originally appeared in Off-the-Grid Prefab Cabin Completely in Tune with Surroundings.
