The starting point for the design was the kitchen. “We wanted the hub of the house to be the kitchen, so we placed it right in the middle, not next to the bifold doors,” Lecouflé-Vinet explains. “I like to cook and wanted to be able to communicate with the rest of the family while they were in the other areas.”Kitchen units and worktops, Wren Kitchens.
