a space for entertaining with homegrown harvest from the garden.
The 1907 Forsthaus Grünow is a historical landmark located at the edge of the Müritz national park and was fully restored in 2018.
The kitchen is part of the renovation and has been carefully designed to serve different formats of social activities.
The choice of material mixes a traditional oak countertop with modern cabinets of black stained birch wood and steel elements to bridge between the historical elements of the house and a new modern era.
The terrazzo trough sink echos the traditional farmhouse utility.
A key part of the kitchen design was playfulness. The stairs in front of the window allows for interaction with the garden and function as hidden storage and provide space to hang out.
Around the stairs, several functional pull-out elements use the otherwise dead corner space.
Photos were taken while revisiting the project a few years later and still experiencing the fun of playing with the movable parts.
