Architecture studio Paul Archer Design topped a side extension with a skylight that runs the length of the kitchen while full-height glass doors let light into a dining area.
The apartment has a large skylight built into a roof terrace above that provides the kitchen with light.
Designed for a colour consultant, this kitchen extension by Office S&M in London combines several on-trend colours including Millennium Pink and Mint Green.
The space also doubles up as an area for the consultant to work and meet with clients, so it was essential that the kitchen was evenly lit.
Curious Practice used birch plywood throughout the interiors of this multi-generational home in the Australian city of Newcastle.
In the kitchen, which is bookended by sliding glass doors, birch plywood was also used to make simple open-face cabinets that were paired with countertops clad in stainless steel.
Designed as a retreat on the Chilean coast by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Ryue Nishizawa, House in Los Vilos has a spectacular kitchen flanked on both sides by full-height glass walls.
Set under the home's wavy concrete roof, the kitchen has expansive views of the Pacific Ocean.
At the front of the apartment, the kitchen is backed by a lattice-like wall with square cutouts that provides natural light and air to the apartment.
This rural house in Chile occupies a pair of structures elevated on stilts and topped with grooved-metal roofs.
Placed at the end of one of the raised buildings, the long kitchen is enclosed by a wall of full-height glazing to give views across the surrounding countryside.
The compact addition contains a small dining area alongside large windows and a glass door next to a kitchen that is topped with a skylight.
On the ground floor, the kitchen was positioned alongside one of the large windows so that it receives plenty of light.
Rise Design Studio created a large kitchen-cum-dining room at the rear of this mid-terrace house.
To bring plenty of light into the space, an extension made almost entirely of glass was added to the side of the home with full-height glass doors at the rear.
