Designer John Picard isn’t afraid of getting his hands dirty in the kitchen, or washing the sand off his feet in the bathroom. This ecological pioneer’s half-lot home is designed for maximum efficiency—and comfort. Opening onto the open-plan living and dining rooms, the aluminum Bulthaup System 20 kitchen with its nine-foot-long stainless steel island and Miele appliances has become a focal point of the house.

“We wanted a big kitchen to live in, not a small, technical place to cook,” says Guido Chiavelli, who returns from work every day to have lunch with his wife and son at their renovated farmhouse in the Italian countryside. At the far end, a glass ceiling presents an open-air feeling. “Cooking while it’s raining is fascinating,” he says. Photo by Helenio Barbetta.
