Safety and comfort
Several outbuildings are located west of the residential palace's central building. Their distance from the palace prevented smoke or food smells from bothering the nobility. They also served to keep the delivery of goods and the kitchen servants' activities hidden from view. Most importantly, positioning the open hearths in outbuildings reduced the risk of a palace fire. The court confectionery was therefore located on the ground floor of the Festin building, which was only linked to the palace by a single gallery.
