Outline

This kitchen revives the lovely tradition of the irori (central hearth) of a traditional Japanese house in a contemporary style. With Face-to-Face Operation Multi-wide IH enabling kitchen operation from both sides, and a Round Access Sink that can be used from three sides, users can enjoy cooking together as if gathered around a hearth, or eat fresh, delicious food as it’s cooked. Today’s kitchens are often laid out so that people cooking are facing the rest of the room, but there remains a gap between those cooking and those eating. This design gently fuses them into a whole, making the kitchen a place where people naturally gather.
