An open floor plan is the signature style of recent condo developments, and many New Yorkers appreciate how this layout can make a space feel bigger and fill every inch with natural light. However, at a time when many of us have been forced to work, learn, exercise, and relax at home, even the largest open-plan apartment can feel a bit tight.

That's where traditional layouts with clearly separated rooms can come in handy. As New York City closes its schools again amidst rising coronavirus cases, a separate kitchen makes for a natural at-home learning space. On a happier note, with Thanksgiving exactly a week away, it can be easier to feel thankful when a messy kitchen and dirty dishes aren't staring one directly in the face during the meal.
52 Garfield Place Award-winning kitchen at 52 Garfield Place
Even some new-construction and newly renovated homes are embracing separate kitchens. A case in point can be found at 52 Garfield Place in Park Slope. The townhouse recently underwent a gut renovation from The Brooklyn Home Company, but the windowed kitchen remains clearly separated from the living area. It has been updated with white Carrara marble countertops, abundant custom cabinetry, a pantry, and state-of-the-art appliances that include under-counter wine and beverage refrigerators. We take a look at this listing and others with separate kitchens.
