Brown and his wife, DeAnna, think of the structure as a cabana, an open-air house with just the basics: outdoor sitting area, bathroom, laundry room, and, since it belongs to a chef, a fully equipped kitchen. “I like to think of it as a kitchen with a full porch attached,” says Brown.

The designer chose all-weather wicker for the front porch living room and Ipe, a Brazilian hardwood, as natural flooring, both of which can be hosed off. A custom, zinc-topped picnic table can comfortably seat ten or so. Poor added touches of color—bright green table legs, patterned pillows, neon-colored woven stools—but mostly kept furnishings neutral. Inside, the island is repurposed from a French commercial kitchen and retrofitted with a pot rack. Pendant lights are made of oversized whisks, paying homage to Brown’s profession. This space was designed for serious leisure, but nothing is taken all that seriously.
