The kitchen is the heart of the home in this urban self build — it even features a swing and leads to a small courtyard garden. A triangular kitchen island makes efficient use of the space, while creating a divide between the areas for cooking and relaxing. Revolutionising the way the family interacts with their listed barn, this ultra-modern extension features a pitted Amazonian granite worktop that contrasts with the vast amounts of natural light.
There’s just one problem with this reasoning and that’s the economic principle called the law of diminishing returns. Diminishing returns is the concept where no matter how good something is, at some point the benefits begin to diminish. In the case of kitchens, I think diminishing returns takes hold after 1 kitchen island.
As kitchens marched toward more efficient designs during the late 19th century, innovative designers like Austria’s Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky began integrating storage and working features into every nook and cranny (efforts that led to modular kitchen cabinets). The simple worktable transformed, too, becoming a space with drawers and cabinets, or even built-in bins.
