SAO PAULO, BRAZIL - The two-story concrete house, is home to a music studio. A secluded patio with lounge furniture situated between the kitchen and service areas while the owners enjoy representative living in a spacious area with an adjoining library.
 Reading, listening to music, enjoying guests‘ company in a totally relaxed atmosphere – these top priorities of the owners demanded an open, inviting and casually furnished room with the character of a lounge.
 The kitchen is virtually “encapsulated“ at the center of the ground floor, it is closely connected to the outside thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows looking onto the patio. 
 ARCHITECTS: MARCIO KOGAN | DIANA RADOMYSLER:"FOR ME THE KITCHEN IS...ALONG WITH THE BED THE MOST IMPORTANT PLACE IN A HOUSE"
 With the extensive worktop, high-grade appliances and easy-to-access storage space, this is a room that begs to be cooked in.

 GÖFIS, AUSTRIA - the striking recess in the rear façade overlooking the garden provides plenty of space for a spacious veranda. This is protected by the roof that projects from the side. The living room, cooking and dining areas merge with one another and are arranged around the terrace.
 The house is flooded with light and the floor-to-ceiling windows open out over a vista of the meadow with an orchard and clumps of trees. The kitchen and living room areas are at an angle to the veranda, giving rise to an intense connection between exterior and interior.
 The kitchen, which consists of two food preparation islands opposite each other, is defined on one side by an all-white wall unit, which also houses the appliances. The color of the islands – a brilliant petrol color – creates a delightful contrast with the warm, somewhat subdued shades of the interior. The overall symmetry conveys a feeling of peace and clarity. 
 ARCHITECT: ERWIN WERLE "FOR ME THE KITCHEN IS......THE MAIN ROOM FOR COMMUNICATION IN EVERY HOME" Space and transparency with plenty of private room - that is the lasting impression of the bungalow in Göfis/Vorarlberg. 
 EPPINGEN, GERMANY - a Caribbean atmosphere with an outdoor pool and palm trees in the garden. The two-storey Villa Belice is situated in a quiet neighbourhood bordering a nature reserve. The building is characterised by recesses and projections in the façade and dramatic contrasts in colours and materials. 
 ARCHITECT: PATRIK YVES LEE "KITCHEN IS FOR ME...THE HEART OF THE HOME" 
    An unobtrusive door next to the matching unit front leads into the pantry. The appearance is dominated by the dramatic contrast between white and black – the theme from the façade of the house continues skilfully on the interior.
 While the side of the house that faces the road is mainly closed to protect privacy, the front opens out on both levels in places and looks out over the landscape.
 The kitchen is at the heart of the house, immediately adjacent  to the covered veranda. The transition into the living room area is fluid and accentuated by a step. The kitchen is kept very minimalist with a food preparation island opposite the wall unit with handle-less, high-gloss fronts. 
 STUTTGART, GERMANY - A spacious house built on a small plot in Stuttgart‘s Feuerbach district. The house is a homogeneous concrete sculpture, surrounded by lush green; from the floor-to-ceiling windows, you have a fantastic view of the vineyards opposite. As a contrast to the cool look of the concrete, the owners wanted natural materials and warm colors inside.
 ARCHITECT: CARMEN SCHNEIDER: "FOR ME THE KITCHEN IS...A CENTRAL PLACE FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY"
 The kitchen is spacious and opens onto the living area. The virtually floor-to-ceiling unit run is custom-fit into a niche and has a very homely look with its genuine oak front. It is an exciting contrast to the blue on the walls and the high-gloss white of the kitchen island.

 The kitchen is not only the heart of the home but looks onto the outside thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows and extends directly onto a courtyard. Top-quality fencing provides discreet protection from passers-by and guarantees the occupants‘ privacy.
