Sustainable architecture is more than just finding ways to reduce our carbon footprints. Many interior
architects are bringing back the natural elements, by merging the natural with the man-made, into the
comfort and the aesthetic to create a healthier living. To achieve this, interior architects are breaking
the walls that separate the two environments. In the modern residential design, floor-to-ceiling style
glide windows are added to connect the patio or deck to the adjacent room, usually to the kitchen or
the living room. Without the intrusion of walls, the glide windows provide a full view of the outdoor
and provide a sustain way to receive natural light and fresh air.
The extended space is additional area for relaxation. The deck or patio can easily be converted into
a dining space or a living space, great for large company. The glide windows and doors also address many
problems that the floor-to-ceiling windows may have. Floor-to-ceiling windows are typically fixed; they
generally don’t open to allow air flow. Beside the circulation issue, glass materials are poor insulators. By
giving the windows the mobility to open and to close, the function allows cool breeze to travel
through the home. Replacing the wall that once separated the indoor and the outdoor environment,
this style of design is perfect for creating a warm and welcoming setting.

Here are some images of the opened space.

By Andrew Huang,
Summer kitchens are a popular design trend in the 21st century vernacular architecture, mainly found in country houses and villas. It is also a favorable trend for vernacular architecture in the coastal region, where warm weather plays an important role in living.

Originated in the 18th century, summer kitchen was found mostly in farms.2 Thanks to the advance in technology, coal-stove became a modern convenience. But, the stove had huge drawback. Heat generated by the stove would warm the main house. The summer kitchen was designed to solve that problem. Foods were prepared in the summer kitchen before carried over to the main house. Therefore, the facility was accessed only by servants and women. The style became popular until World War II. Due to the technological and cultural development, summer kitchens became obsoleted.

The revival style is popular to the modern taste, especially in Florida homes. Summer
kitchens became an entertainment area. In some cases the summer kitchen is not just limited to being a kitchen. It is a hybrid of a lounge, a dining room, and a kitchen; and, it is usually located by a pool. Traditionally, the summer kitchen would look like a building of its own, closely resembling the main house. The modern summer kitchen tends to be an open structure and is more homogeneous with the main house—like an artwork—in unity and wholeness.

Here are some images of traditional and modern summer kitchen.
