Marquisa Le Roux. Kitchen. November 07th , 2017.
The kitchen of this lakeside villa designed by Belatchew Arkitekter receives light from two sides. It has counters on two walls that face each other and both of them have large windows that completely replace the backsplash. The windows bring in light but, more importantly, offer wonderful views of the nearby lake and surrounding landscape.
If you are one of those who loves the natural touch that ‘wood’ brings into your home, then this crafty combination of stone and wooden finishes seems like the design to emulate when you decide to go for a new kitchen. Light, airy and attractively lit by both ample natural ventilation and artificial lighting, this space has a refreshing atmosphere thanks to the playful wooden cabinets and even a touch of natural green; Ergonomic and elegant with natural goodness aplenty.
In some cases, a window backsplash is preferred because of a lack of natural light. An interesting example is the summer house designed by BAK Arquitectos, where concrete was used for countertop. Even though it has a very open layout, there’s not really an abundance of natural light inside the house. In order to have a kitchen that’s both bright and functional in terms of storage space, they chose the window backsplash strategy.
The kitchen counter is not usually positioned directly in front of the window. However, sometimes the lack of space demands it. This house designed by Crisp Architects has a simple kitchen designed around a regular window to which they added a smaller, horizontal one as a way to bring more light in and to ensure a cohesive look.
