This open-ended kitchen pavilion may be a mite on the unorthodox side, style-wise, but I find a number of very appealing practical features to it. I bet the tunnel-like structure catches a nice passing breeze, as well as providing shelter when—as it is wont to do—the weather turns foul. Keeping the grill in the shade makes monitoring cooking foods a glare-free process. And of course ceiling lights ensure the fun doesn't have to stop when darkness falls. zabor.net
