What you see: a light- and breeze-filled space, thanks to a pair of large, high-impact-resistant casement windows. Reclaimed wood countertops
and a tumbled travertine tile backsplash add natural warmth to the space.
What you don’t see: the double-duty cooling effects from the roof overhead. Made of light-colored steel, the covering reflects the sun’s heat and extends about 2 feet beyond the house’s wall, creating ample shade for the windows below.
