They worked the angles.

Angled work stations organize this remodeled kitchen, helping to disguise its disproportionate narrowness. The trapezoid-shaped sections--one each for sink, cooktop, refrigerator, oven, desk, and pantry--provide individually tailored spaces for each basic task or appliance.

Originally, the kitchen was two small rooms, each containing some appliances and one window. San Francisco architect Dan Phipps removed the wall between the two spaces to form one 12- by 24-foot space and enlarged the windows.

The largest counter, for the sink, is 10 feet long and puts into the room at a 9-1/2[deg.] angle. It's widest near the breakfast area, where it provides a place to set dishes. It narrows at the opposite end to make room for floor-to-ceiling cabinets.
