In some cases a window backsplash is preferred because of a lack of natural light. An interesting example is the summer house designed by BAK Arquitectos where concrete was used for countertop. Even though it has a very open layout there’s not really an abundance of natural light inside the house. In order to have a kitchen that’s both bright and functional in terms of storage space they chose the window backsplash strategy.
The Brown Residence by Lake|Flato Architects has a pretty interesting kitchen. The backsplash window doesn’t look directly outdoors but rather into a hallway. It‘s an interesting way of connecting the spaces and ensuring a seamless transition and a continuous flow between them.
The brushed steel is a refreshing look for the stainless steel kitchen which almost looks white with the light shining on it. The beauty of this design is in the subtlety of the mixture of materials. The wood cabinetry almost seems out of place until you notice the huge pantry to the left and it all comes together.
