I am having a design dilemma where the architect has suggested the floor plan for the ground floor where the kitchen is falling in the area where there is a big void (Opposite to Family room and next to WIP i.e. butler's kitchen. The ceiling over the void area would be about around 6 meters high! Having a kitchen in that area makes me unsure how it will look. For instance there will be empty space over the joinery (which I am not sure will look good) and secondly it will be a problem having light pendants or something like that. The kitchen would open onto the alfresco area which is about 45 square meters.
Please have a look at the attached drawing and let me know of your thoughts. Many thanks!
