What Houzz contributors are saying:

The front door opens to the combined kitchen, dining and living space, while plenty of glass puts the stunning lake view center stage. Going minimal with the furnishings was a conscious choice, says Hutchison. “We wanted something more relaxed and informal than the main house,” he says. “It’s meant to be very simple, quiet and private.” A simple kitchen with a plastic laminate countertop also helps keeps the view clear. The peninsula range and window sink mean guests never work with their back toward the view. The string of ribbon windows along the side wall were strategically placed so that when guests are seated, the horizon becomes the focus rather than the neighboring properties.
“A simple kitchen with a plastic laminate countertop also helps keeps the view clear. The peninsula range and window sink mean guests never work with their back toward the view.” — Mitchell ParkerAnd what a view it is. There’s something to be said for fuss-free, subtle finishes that let the surroundings be the star. This guesthouse tour is absolutely awe inducing, from the copper cladding to the playful pipes that support the structure and remind me of one of my favorite Rem Koolhaas projects, Villa dall’Ava. The views from the guesthouse and of it from above, as well as the experience of traversing the steep slope between the it and the main house, drove the design.

I like this layout if it were to be located on the left side when walking in. To make the kitchen transfer better the cabinet on the right could be a half bar with stools
