  A hub of family life at the Depot House, the kitchen hosts meals, hanging around, or doing the odd bit of paperwork, as Organschi and his daughter Hanna demonstrate. The chairs around the small table are vintage 1940s 
French designs and were purchased from the New York furniture dealer Steven Sclaroff. The rug, by Gunta Stölze, is from Christopher Farr.  Photo by: Andrea Chu
