I am always amazed that there are places where you can live without needing screens. Where I'm from if you open the door a crack you've got flies.

I'm with sgmw! I think it's lovely and the craftsmanship is evident. But realistically from a cleanliness standpoint and from a sanitation perspective - do you really want your pots and pans open and exposed to the everyday grease, grime and dust of a kitchen? And the fact that they are so low to the floor means that all the germs that we carry in on our shoes have the opportunity to make it to the pots and pans just by casual everyday living. We all know that nothing stays static - especially on a floor. It's just not hygienic. And I would not want to feel compelled to wash a pot or pan before I used it either... And I just do not get the trend of open shelving in a kitchen. Same idea - who wants to dust their dishes and shelving all the time before they use them? I want my kitchen to be utilitarian, safe and attractive and I am not convinced that open shelving lends itself to the "safe" part of that equation.

This is a very nice and calm looking kitchen but I wonder how it would be to cook in it. The triangle is interrupted by the very long island. You'd do a lot of foot work to get to the "main" sink from the stove or fridge. See floor plan after renovation.

Open shelving in an open kitchen....not in my lifetime. Homestly, most people who have these kinds of kitchens have someone who comes in and cleans those shelves on a regular basis. And a lot of it is just for show.
