The kitchen needs to be larger. A lot larger. It should have many cabinets for storage. It should include the workplace. in fact the executive chair should be able to reach various compartment, including the fridge and the stove. I don’t care what the designers say — the synch (and the dishwasher) should be right next to the stove.
The very first iteration of the gallery space had an open kitchen, which the ministry opposed. It made perfect sense back and still does. The coffee aroma needs to brings things in motion and the counter is perfect place for meeting the constituents. Gifts needs to be edible. People should share their food. The balcony needs to be directly adjacent. It allows the natural light to fill the place and should support green life (vegatables) to sustain fresh salads treatment. Library shelves? Reference books mostly. There is hardly any room to waste. Digital? Absolutely.
