This kitchen was designed so that the future homeowner could comfortably work in the kitchen alone or with a partner. The distance between the backbench and the island allows plenty of room to move around. Movement around the kitchen is highly efficient with the layout, designed with adequate space between the cooktop, sink and refrigerator. Ergonomic factors in the kitchen regarding stress on the body play an important role. Daily activity in the kitchen is more comparable to a workout in the gym rather than a pleasant stroll in the park. That’s because it involves long distances intertwined with lots of stopping, bending, stretching and acceleration. Therefore, the majority of base cabinets were drawers. Drawers function more user friendly with less bending and reaching.
