t the Wayne Residence in Wayne, Illinois, private and public life collide. To make the home’s minimalist aesthetic feel welcoming, Jeffrey Funke designed the home in two wings. One houses the family’s playrooms, bedrooms, and casual living spaces. The other houses the formal dining room, living room, and courtyard terrace, double-story spaces that are meant for entertaining guests. The kitchen, placed strategically between the two, acts as the home’s hinge. “The kitchen is said to be the heart of the home, and here it is the hub of all the action and the intersection of the public and private realms of the house,” Funke says.
