Maxwell Zoo’s extremity is the outlook from this very much lived in kitchen. Before this the kitchen was the usual U shape with the normal kitchen window and sink looking out where you now see tall glazed doors. This led to the cooking and sink being included in the island. There was also a requirement for a dining area to seat six, so the bench seating seemed the needed compact answer. There is also an integrated fridge in the island close to the oven with a tall integrated Fridge freezer & tall larder cabinet just visible near the bench seating.
