This version shows the “Essential Living” concept in a different design. In this case, it is completely isolated from the remaining living area.
The kitchen with all its functions and the open breakfast or worktable are situated in the middle of the room. It can be accessed via sliding doors. The cube offers intelligent kitchen appliances on the inside and brings the working area of the kitchen to center stage. Two large sliding doors close off the room. They provide an open view of the living area and visible shelves are attached for cooking utensils or books. Depending on how far you open or close the doors, the appearance of the entire room changes.
The cabinet part supported by white high gloss steel beams brings out the features while the outer part stands out with ceramics that feature a marble look. “Essential Living” is planned and implemented exactly according to the personal wishes and ideas of the homeowner or interior architect.

The functional areas
This operational kitchen studio was developed for the “Essential Living” project. Here, it forms the center of an expansive space that offers room for all other living areas: the entrance, parlor, bedroom, and dining area. The functional areas can be opened or closed as desired with two sliding doors.
