Built-in bookcase for cookbooks! I just want built in bookcases in every room for books! I'll carry a book from one room to another and have a dedicated shelf for my current read. Although, having dedicated space for cookbooks is smart, too.
This design is crazy, I love all the natural light, and the wall of windows that appears to lead to a greenhouse. The stairs being right above the kitchen is very cool, that's something I have seen very few times.
