Extensive storage was essential – to keep things tidy and organized – to we designed a cube in the centre to with easy access for closets, laundry, a drying closet, fridge, pantries, bar.

Just like passing through the compressed entrance of an Igloo, a tunnel through the cube opens up into an expansive kitchen, dining and sitting room: A dining table for 8 and clean kitchen millwork allow space for a chef to make the easy shift from cooking to serving.
