Part 3: Design
Functionality, ease of maintenance, privacy, and a dedicated work space were top priorities for the Parks family. That, and creating an independent, energy-efficient home.
To accomplish this, the design team at Acton ADU curated a sleek, yet rustic design that provided loads of counter space and storage, and tailored an area originally designated as a breakfast nook, into a wonderful office space. Here are some highlights.
The kitchen was designed to have maximum counter space for cooking with an island that doubles as the dining table or secondary work area. Additionally, an induction cooktop was selected for both the electrical requirements, but also for longer-term safety and aging in place.
The office was an integral element, providing a place for James, who is both an Acton ADU team member and an author of fiction and graphic novels, a quiet, independent space from the other areas.
