The first-floor is an open-plan kitchen, living and dining area, unified by pale sanded and limed floorboards. There is plenty of storage behind the plain white cupboard doors under the worktop, and there is even an extractor fan that retracts into the workbench.

The kitchen is designed to look more like a living room than a typical kitchen. Here, light can flow through, so the island becomes a great place to sit and eat, chat or do homework, while for parties it makes the perfect bar.
