Small and Inspiring

It's a small space, only 770 square feet on the interior and sometimes those spaces can produce all kinds of inspiration. They call this the "Cookhouse" and it was designed by Green Partners. They're a small firm from Washington with a focus on sustainable design and crafted details.

The space was simply designed for a family to gather, relax, prepare and enjoy meals together. The entire room feels very open with natural light and the bright white finishes of the walls and cabinets. The exposed custom trusses help define the space and at the same time, highlight the architecture.

Both rustic and industrial, the exterior gives off a fresh, welcoming overall feel with the cedar and metal materials. The use of the larger overhangs creates a nice, subtle outdoor sitting area.

To accent the cookhouse, they incorporated this cool outdoor gathering space with a wood-burning stove.
