Information: The kitchen is designed by the architect Thorkel Klerk in the early 50ies for his own family. The current owners bought the house in 2004. The design is inspired by the joy of sailing. The consistent use of solid brass handles on doors and cabinet doors, and the mix of several different woods are striking. Mahogany on the floors, doors of teak and the characteristic of ash cabinet wall in one corner of the living room. The three middle sections fold down and open up to the kitchen. The doors which are fitted with solid brass fittings and painted inside with shiny, black lacquer, works as a small bar counter from the living room and an extended tabletop from the kitchen.
