ELEGANT & EFFICIENT148 pages of design and product inspirationThe kitchen and bathroom need to be designed with a little more attention to detail than other rooms in the home, so that they can be functional and efficient as well as beautiful.The new kitchen in Multiplicity’s Too Many Tims Are Never Enough (page 58) uses a sense of conviviality to shape its layout and vibrant colour scheme – with the emphasis on encouraging the whole family to participate in the preparation and enjoyment of food. Similarly, the bathroom is planned so that it permits different family members to be in the space concurrently, and the colours and patterns in this space are certainly memorable.At SJB’s Cleveland Rooftop (page 38), the architect has experimented with the standard apartment layout to create an…

finishing touches

If the kitchen is the heart of the home, then the manner in which it is planned is a window into the domestic patterns of a house’s inhabitants. And though every kitchen is fundamentally a working zone made up of similar components – fridge, oven, sink and so on – the fourteen featured in this issue reveal a pleasing variety in the way those components come together and in how the room as a whole might engage with, or separate itself from, the rest of the house. For Owen Architecture, the kitchen of Camp Hill Cottage (page 32) is generous and open to allow food preparation to become a communal activity among extended family. For Doherty Design Studio, however, a butler’s pantry sequestered behind the “public” kitchen of Kew Residence…

There is pleasing variety among the bathrooms in this issue, and the disparate aesthetics and plans can be ascribed to the different demands of the families who use them.

Owen Architecture’s solution (page 32) was to contain the shower and toilet in cubicles and the bath and sink in open niches off a shared corridor that allows…
