One thing we've noticed: Europeans are not compelled to install historically contextual kitchens when they move into old houses. Case in point: a pair of streamlined Bulthaup kitchens (a catering kitchen and a family kitchen), slotted into a Danish villa built in the Middle Ages.

Above: The stately villa is located on the island of Funen, in the middle of a park.

Above: The catering kitchen features a modular Bulthaup b2 Kitchen System with free-standing walnut cabinetry capacious enough to store a kitchen's worth of pots, pans, and pantry items.

Above: A view of the kitchen with the cabinets closed.

Above: The catering kitchen includes two stainless steel workbenches positioned to form a single long workspace.

Above: The family kitchen is a modular b2 Kitchen System, featuring a freestanding island with solid oak cabinetry.

Above: A credenza appears to be floating and provides additional storage.

Above: A double door opens to the garden.

Above: The island features an integrated stainless sink.

Above: Classic Wegner Wishbone chairs in the dining area.
