What Houzz contributors are saying:
Here, again, is a simple change in level, but in a slightly more complex space, with a kitchen raised up from a more open dining/living space…
Get a good viewWhether I’m designing a new-build house, an extension or simply the remodelling of an interior, I am always thinking about the interior spaces, how they work together and, importantly, what the occupant’s view will be from various positions within the space.A very effective technique is to look for ‘layered’ views with depth. What I mean by this is views where the occupant is looking from one space, across or through one or more other spaces (they might be different zones within an open-plan area, or through sets of doors or openings) to a destination, often a garden or outdoor courtyard. Finding such layered views will not only create an uplifting and inspiring sense in the interior, but will also enhance the sense of space.
Go to another levelThis impressive space makes use of different floor levels and different ceiling heights, which psychologically helps to increase the distance between separate zones designed for different functions. The chic kitchen is physically kept separate from a cosy TV den thanks to the dividing wall, but both areas naturally flow (but don’t bleed) into the large dining and lounging area. The result is a space where a large family can easily be ‘alone together’.
