They see her cook, but they can't smell the garlic.
At the same time, she doesn't want to feel completely shut off. A pair of glass doors and two tall, narrow windows keep the kitchen visually open to the adjoining family room. Each 7-foot-tall door is 32 inches wide. The 6-1/2-foot windows are 15 inches wide and trimmed in vertical-grain fir. When open, the doors fold all the way back over the windows. (A solid wood door separates the kitchen from a more formal dining room.)
Seattle architects Carolyn Widgery and Stuart Silk designed the kitchen. At the center stands a 46-1/2-inch-wide. 8-1/2-foot-long island equipped with storage cabinets and a double sink that looks toward the family room. The easy-to-clean, glossy red laminate top adds color to the predominantly white kitchen.
A gas cooktop is set into the counter behind the island. At the back of the cooktop, a heavy-duty exhaust fan vents cooking fumes close to their source.
