This educational unit has been designed to educate architects, designers, contractors and installers about Specifying Luxury Kitchens in Small Spaces.
While primary homes are big and getting bigger, there are many reasons why an architect or designer is likely to encounter smaller kitchens. The cases range from city apartments to vacation condos to pied-a-terres and even yachts.
While kitchens in these residences may be relatively small, they can still have the upscale finishes, quality appliances and all the bells and whistles the luxury clientele expects.
This course describes general design considerations for specifying smaller kitchens, discusses refrigeration and cooking appliances that make most sense in a smaller space, and then suggests how to spread kitchen functions beyond the kitchen and into the rest of the home.
