In one of the lovely homes, a compact, simple yet elegant composition of the ONE kitchen is enclosed by a wall of glass which frames it within a discreet yet functional space.
We are at Francavilla Fontana, on Italy’s Salento peninsula, along the old route of the Appian Way in the Apulia Region.
It is a charming, fascinating little town, with narrow streets offering a mix of old buildings and modern additions.
The design strategy of ‘relegating’ the kitchen to a space entirely dedicated to its main functions creates a tidy, comfortable room. The large glazed partition conserves the room’s intimate mood yet opens it to sharing.
The vignette, masterly arrangement of accessories.
The unconventional added furnishings dovetail with the kitchen perfectly to create a trendy interior, part modern geometry and part artistic expression.
