Ideas for Small Kitchen and Dining Room
The Kitchen and Dining Room
- Embed lighting. This deceptively simple stainless-steel arc made it possible for Gregory to add task lighting to an area with impenetrable concrete ceilings.
- Build a space within a space. The wraparound structure also carves out a dining area from an entryway not much larger than a coat rack. It creates an entirely new room—and the bead-blasted surface doesn't show fingerprints.
- Defy gravity. Gregory wanted a cantilevered eating area that would allow free-flowing movement (and room for one or two additional guests), so, with his engineering know-how, he created a bar that doesn't require the usual support legs.
