The kitchen design seems fit for a loft since it creates a division between the kitchen and the rest of the open space. The beautiful “arch” solves a common problem with very high ceiling by lowering the ceiling lamps. It brings down the kitchen to human scale, instead of feeling lost in the space.
The minimalist lines of the white cabinets work well against the wooden wall. The glass box could be used as display area or my favorite, to grow an herb garden.
The shown configuration looks great on pictures. I would probably add a row of lower cabinets to be with the family or see my guests while I prepping my food and plating my dishes. It does not have to be wide as an island for it to work. Artesio kitchen will be available in the USA in January 2011.
