Kitchen Living Dining & Rock

The continuous kitchen, dining, and living space is framed by a granite rock bluff enclosed within the house. Clerestory windows capture the southern light helping to heat the home naturally. (photo by Ana Sandrin)

Floor is great - Would you recommend me to have a wooden floor. I live in a very warm and humid climate most of the time. I love wooden floors or semi wood floors. But maybe it is not a good idea. Thank you for your time. Alejandro.

Oak & Broad
I would suggest an Engineered wood floor. Its real wood flooring with a backer board that keep it flat despite humidity.

Right on, iamnh! Yes the idea is that the counter height table can multi-function as a kitchen island or dining table, and it also gives a "lofty" feeling to the dining experience. The legs are from IKEA (Utby) and the tabletop is from Plyboo, cut to 10' length and sanded, natural oil finish gives it a natural feel and deeper color. Cheers, A

The tile backsplash is 15"x4" white. Several manufacturers make a similar tile. Cheers

Cabinet material? Is it wood or some type of laminate? - I was hoping to reface my current cabinetry in just this type of material.

The cabinet material is a stained pine from Ikea (now discontinued). Another cabinet door company would most likely make a close match. Cheers, H

How did you make this amazing rock wall? - I had a rock like yours that could have make a part of my wall in my basement but the contractor told me it was too risky to get bad humidity in the house. Is the rock directly connected to the house or is there a glass or other material covering it? Do you have problems with water infiltration or humidity? This it a very nice kitchen/dining room. Congratulations.

Hi, the rock is indeed directly connected to the house without glass or other partition. We don't have any water or humidity issues. We used standard commercial and residential details to accomplish this. We will be producing a book about the rock wall design as well as for the overall house in late 2013 or early 2014. Check for updates. Cheers, H

This looks like the Tidig pendant from IKEA. Also, there are quite a few similar styles made by EGLO or Dainolite that should be available in most lighting showrooms.

Lisa Frederick added this to Single-Wall Galley Kitchens Catch the 'I'
Flexibility. Without the constrictions of all fixed cabinetry and islands, single galley kitchens lend themselves to modular extras that can be moved around as needed. Many kitchens of this type incorporate a freestanding table or cart to be pulled into service as a dining space, makeshift work zone or place for guests. Budget friendliness. Less cabinetry and less countertop area usually equal cost savings on materials. If you're pinching pennies, you may be able to keep the price tag low by choosing affordable surfaces and finishes. If there's wiggle room in your wallet, pricier options may be within reach because you won't need big quantities.
The space constraints in this Vancouver house's living/dining space are clear. The single-wall kitchen is an obvious choice, given the width of the room. As in the previous example, tall cabinets bookend the kitchen, with the refrigerator on the left, then the stove and then the sink. This kitchen flips the order of the stove and sink from earlier examples, but it's less important today that people's actions progress in the kitchen from the refrigerator (getting out the meat, dairy and vegetables) to the sink (cleaning them) and to the stove (cooking them); more important now is having a zone or area to work in. Single-wall kitchens may have less room for this than other shapes, so every bit of surface is important and should be used to its utmost capacity.
