Kitchen Layout Guide
“Kitchen Layout Guide” is a detailed infographic from GlassTileStore.com and www.kitchencabinetkings.com It describes the different shapes which a kitchen may take on, and how one must take care not to break the effective “work triangle”.

Each kitchen and floor plan illustrates and gives advice on the best positions for the work triangle in order to have an efficient and harmonious lay-out.

Kahn's struggle to find the coherent answer for each architectural challenge remains the basic principle characterizing his complete work.
