grooming services and even bike
storage rooms with work benches so
tenants can work on their bikes, says
David Genc, Director of Design at
Hirsch Associates.
For single-family homes, the
amenities still include gas fireplaces,
and, even with smaller kitchens, fullsize appliances, such as six-burner
gas stoves. "There might be less
square footage, but appliances have

of ASK Studios, Des Moines. Steve

a rental package. The table, made up
of a 1 ½-inch thick piece of reclaimed
walnut, replaces the kitchen island and
can be used for working, food prep
and dining and can be easily moved
aside. "You have to have multitasking
spaces," he said.
In addition to the universalist philosophy
that advocates making multiple use
of spaces, clients are also looking
for better traffic flow to improve
functionality. "The kitchen should
be more isolated," asserts Peterson.
