Arranging Kitchen Functions

Σχεδιασμός

A rational organisation of kitchen modules

The first elements to consider when planning a kitchen are the quantity of space available, and above all, its configuration.
A complete, well-balanced composition is almost always feasible if you never lose sight of the four principle functions: storage, washing, preparation and cooking.

A linear composition can be best even when there is abundant space.

Essential in its configuration, concentrating functions and services along a single wall can make a space more practical.

All against one wall
This composition is not just for long narrow rooms.

With the diffusion of "open space" architecture that eliminates the walls between rooms, a linear composition can be best even when there is abundant space.

Essential in its configuration, concentrating functions and services along a single wall can make a space more practical.
The diagram suggests a possible arrangement of various elements: beginning from the right, there are two columns next to each other containing the refigerator and the oven (with ample space dedicated to storage); immediately next to these is the sink with practical pull-out baskets below it; then finally come the cooking range and the ventilation hood.

Between the sink and the cooking range are two counter tops, useful for food preparation, and some drawers and cabinets which can be used to store food and accessories.
Two functional blocks
This composition separates the functions of the kitchen into two blocks.
This type of organisation is even better than the previous one for "open space" environments because the distribution of modules is no longer bound to a traditional scheme.
In the main block are the washing areas, flanked to the right by an ample preparation space and to the left flanked by a cooking areas.
Framing this are some base units and spacious wall units, which finish up with a column on either side where any objects can be rationally distribuited and kept within easy reach.
The secondary block is positioned against another wall where a low closet houses the refrigerator, a series of pull-out baskets and the oven.
The corner solution
A kitchen arranged around a corner provides continuity and permits the distribution of its functions in a very rational manner.
The spaces between one functional area and another expand, allowing the inclusion of more storage and conservation modules.
In the diagram, the corner is dedicated to the cooking area.
The refrigerator is found at the left end of the composition; the sink in the center; and the preparation counter top has a priveleged role, amply extending the right end into a "horseshoe" shape.
