Sink with a View, Washington, D.C.

A Sink with a View is a hard-working kitchen. The plan offers several views from the sink side of a stainless-topped island, an element that anchors the room.

A floor-to-ceiling glass wall offers big views of Washington, DC's Rock Creek Park.

The kitchen includes two work islands, a kitchen office, and a dining area. The second island, near the window-wall, has a second sink, as well as chairs for bar-style seating. The dining area is to the right.

To the far-end of the kitchen's window-wall side is an office space that's a quiet spot for paying bills, sending email, or doing homework.

Just beyond the kitchen is the living room, with a door that leads to the side yard.

Elevation drawings show that this kitchen was designed for high function on a friendly and accessible scale.

The kitchen remodel makes the most of a center-hall plan, drawing company into the kitchen.

The main working island is wider at the end opposite the kitchen entry and curved on one side.It performs the deft feat of guests right into this inviting kitchen while steering them clear of the cook's workspace.
