Intelligent kitchen as a the core of the home


What better way to start off the week than with a wonderful video tour of a kitchen any entertaining cook would love to have? Architect Francine Besselaar and her partner Canan Akyuz, built her Princeton, New Jersey, home to showcase open, airy spaces and a kitchen that fosters conversation.

The intelligence of this kitchen comes through in its functionality, in its openness, in its relation to nature, the relation of the spaces to each other. It’s in how the kitchen works as a center into the family room or into the dining area — it’s like the core of the house. Everything spins out of here. It’s a joy to cook in.
