We’ve all been trained on the formal “work triangle” in kitchen design, but the “work circle” can work even better. This round kitchen is truly the hub of the home with butler’s pantry access to the formal dining room and adjacent ale bar, while overlooking the morning room and informal gathering/ leisure room. The convenience continues with the placement of the laundry room and garage entry. The shape is emulated throughout the interior architecture, from the ceiling treatment to the grill details. In short, this is an efficient, centrally located, gorgeous gourmet kitchen for the most discerning chef.

A. Informal gathering room features expansive glass that offers view to lanai

B. Good morning room has curved windows that expand the view from the kitchen toward the lanai and pool area

C. Ale bar provides a central beverage and snack area

D. Butler’s pantry is a spacious storage area with an additional sink

E. Formal dining room is open to the foyer and features curved glass with a view toward the loggia

F. Laundry room is conveniently located adjacent to the kitchen
