Workflow in a kitchen is a critical part of the design. A U-shaped kitchen, for example, can be extremely functional, particularly for one cook. Being able to take something out of the refrigerator, prepare and serve it, makes meal prep so much easier. Here, we added a separate work area that contains a wine captain below additional counter space. It also enables a second cook to access the refrigerator or the beverage refrigerator – and help in the kitchen without disturbing the traffic flow.
