This architect devised an ingenious solution for this couple to separate their kitchen and dining rooms at will: he opened up the wall between the two spaces and installed curtains as dividers to screen the kitchen when necessary. Normally, they're pulled back to create one bright, airy space. At the center of the kitchen is the island containing the stove and oven. It's treated as a freestanding piece of furniture, which adds to the feeling of spaciousness.
