Many modern families now require additional space adjacent to the kitchen, this is what the Collins family wanted. This sort of space is often called a “family room” and can be a totally separate room, or an adjoining space (as with this project), or it could be fully integrated into the kitchen. Regardless of the actual layout, in essence they reflect the need for the family to share a space so that the adults can get on with their tasks and also supervise the children. Many families also use this space for entertaining guests as well, thus dispensing with the traditional dining room altogether, or reserving it for very special occasions.
Whatever your needs, Building Tectonics will try to find a solution as we did here for the Collins family.
